Last week there was a thread about evaluating/intervening for speech delays, and I posted that I was trying not to worry about my 16-month-old, whose only word was an occasional "Mama." On Friday, we went in for a checkup, and the pediatrician said that I definitely shouldn't worry, but that if Mallory wasn't saying at least 6 words by 21 months, she'd refer me to a specialist just in case.

Well, that night Mallory said "Bye bye!" to her bathwater. The next day she said "No!" when my mother-in-law tried to forcefeed her some cheese. And at 5:30 this morning she sat right up in bed and said, "Urse!" and seemed delighted that I understood this to mean that she wanted to nurse.

I guess she doesn't want to go to a specialist!

I'm so glad to hear that! Sounds like she's making up for lost time :-) I bet she'll be saying 20 words before 21 months!
