my lo is 18 months today. super super busy guy. very curious and lots of energy. he pulls himself up and climbs all over everything. crawls really fast. stands and cruises but will not, absolutely refuses, to even attempt walking.
he can stand alone. i've seen him do it but he just will not do it consistently or without prompting.
also, he babbles constantly, with inflection, but will not repeat words. won't say "mama". kind of says "dada" but has a whole language of his own and convincingly uses it as if we understand him.
won't point to body parts or the light or the kitty when asked "where's ____" or do any of those other word/object identification i see other babies doing.
we spend all day with him- either dh or i or both and talk to him constantly. he is very grumpy and frustrated a lot of the time.
he also refuses to eat anything but cheerios, some rice, and banana. and boob. lots and lots of boob. still waking to nurse at night 3-4 times. (it's wearing me out at this point.)
normal? am i missing something?
