My 3 year old dd has a slow go of it in the speech/language dept. She didn't really start speaking in sentences until close to 2.5 and now at newly 3, her speech is progressing, but it seems she is having trouble getting her thoughts out. For instance, a typical sentence where she is struggling to get her point across can go something like this: ''Daddy, we went to the mall and saw Santa because I saw Santa and Josh played with me and the kids in the boat because the kids in the boat.'' I always understand her since I am with her all day, but anyone else would have little to no clue what she is trying to get at. I'd say that as her sentences have gotten longer in length and her vocabulary has increased that her sentences are becoming harder to understand. She just ran in her saying ''Daddy ate all the rollup and me.'' redface.gif Again, I know she meant ''Daddy and I ate all the roll-up.'' Is this age appropriate?

I don't know if it is normal or not. Mine did not ever do that.  You could always get her evaluated for speech and see what they say.  Sometimes though I know my son's brain ran a lot faster than his mouth so he would have trouble getting it all out.  Lots of modeling and telling them to slow down can help.

My son doesn't do that.  He says great, long sentences that make sense.  When he gets stuck he says, um then thinks then gets the word out.  If you're concerned you can always get her evaluated - completely up to you.
