Chase had his nine month doctor's appointment today. I have honestly been worried about his lack of verbal development. He really does not make many sounds other than laughing/crying and sometimes a few "ahhhhhhhhs." No babbling. No consonants. No waving or clapping. Our pediatrician was not too concerned yet because he makes good eye contact and is hitting his other milestones - like crawling, climbing, pulling up, cruising, ect.
I just wish my sweet boy would start "talking." I know you should never compare babies because they all develop so differently. By nine months Ashlyn was clapping, waving and "chatting" up a storm. But she was not crawling with her belly off of the ground. They just all have their own pace. It's just so hard not to worry sometimes.
