According to most I've read, it seems that by age 3, 50% of your toddler's speech should be understandable to strangers. I am sure that even parents who have kids with advanced vocabularies are still a little skewed when asked to make this judgement. In our case, Gage seems to have quite an advanced vocabulary for his age and we get comments often about how much/well he speaks; however, I have realized recently that I probably understand WAY more of what he says then most others. Not that that's not often the case, but in 'mommy' ears, 90% of what he says I understand. Gage has actually begun stuttering lately and it's mostly when he strings 6 or more words together which makes sense. I think his little brain is just thinking so hard of how to put the words together and his mouth is already running. It has become a little more severe, but I do think it's natural. In any case, I want to play a litte game. Luke got about a 10 word sentence (no stuttering) on video the other night. So let's see if you guys can tell what my little man is talking about! Comment on your guesses!
