Well thanks everyone for all the positive post about my concern over not talking and false signs. My son is pointing to everything and he seams to be very good at memorization since he can pick out like 6 family members when we ask him to point to them in a photo, he is saying Daddy clearly and Ma Ma Ma a lot now to. Ok, here is another dilemma, the sippie cup, we have tried and tried and he will not touch it, will only drink out of the bottle, we went about 3 days with him not drinking and stillno luck, then summer hit and we had to keep him hydrated, his 4 hour daycare only does sippe cups so I am not sure what to do. Maybe he is really stubborn and we need to keep trying. Anyone else have this problem with a 2 1/2 year old boy refusing to use a sippie cup?
