Just hoping to get some feedback from other moms on this. Madeline is 19-mos old now. I noticed at 18 mos she didn't really want to speak that often. I read the guidelines for speech and she fell within them (although at the bottom end) and talked with my ped about it--he wasn't concerned at all because her receptive language is amazing and she is ahead on everything else, and she can say words.
But, of course, I worried a bit. I have been really paying attention to her language as a result during the past month
