Other for me as well. My oldest talked early, that is, he said his first words early. But stringing together sentences took longer. He is now four and finally is at the point where I'd say he's almost fully caught up. This was/is my fault entirely as I mix the two languages too much (I'm supposed to be the second language speaker).

My middle child has been talking well for quite awhile. He completed sentences much earlier and with more clarity than my oldest. I'd say he's even a little advanced for his age group except he slurs a couple of his letters (or "wedderth" as he'd say).

So far the girls are learning English and ASL. We are working on teaching them some German since we have a German Au Pair right now. They have been exposed to Italian, but have not really learned much of the language yet. They started talking/signing well ahead of their peers.
