My 21 month old little guy has been a liitle bit slower in his speech , but has an older brother who has more than enough words for the whole family! The wierd part is, he growls everything. All of the words he does say are in a low throaty growl. People look shocked and giggle everytime he speaks.The tiny tiny bit that he does use his voice the tiniest cute almost comical sound comes out. He can hear well, because his comprehension is phenomenal. I am not really worried here... more curious to know if others experience this. When did your child grow out of it?

no real advice, but a question. is his growling all the time? does he ever speak in a more, i guess, tuneful voice? If it is a consistent thing, it may be something to get checked out. Does the ped say anything?

My son growls, really more of a roar, because he likes to talk like a tiger. When he growls, I just say wow listen to the tiger roar. I usually do not make a big deal out of it, and people seem to understand the fun in pretending. He does still growl though, but more for fun <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
My sister talked later because I was always around to translate. She did not have to talk, I did it for her. :LOL Sounds like what is going on. I find my son goes through language explosions and growls less. My son is 2 years, four months. He is just in the last few months, right before he turned 2, started talking really well, communicating, speaking more clearly. I think it is just a matter of time. Now he talks all the time.
