Re: Teaching Mama

I don't think it sounds too strange for the age. My 21 mo old calls all animals a cat or a dog. I think the point is that they are communicating with you, period. Recognizing patterns in language, showing interest when you speak, responding to prompts(even if responding incorrectly ), and learning new words here and there... language development at this age is really important but it is also highly variable. Try to see the overall picture, and try not to get overly worried about one thing.

I agree with PP's suggestions to try to help your LO but don't worry too much unless there are other indications of a problem.
