Every kid is bit different, relax, they will learn when they're ready!!
He sounds normal to me. DD barely had any words until she was almost 2, pointed late, didn't walk until 17mo and would sometimes become fascinated with what she could do with her hands. She's 3.5yo now and is completely normal.
Kids are quirky, they all have funny behaviours and like to test the world around them in their own ways. Your DS sounds like a happy boy so just enjoy!
My cousins baby boy is 11.5 months . I saw him yesterday for lunch . He doesn't say many words , but flaps his arms, wrists when excited or laughing. He's crawling and stands holding on to things but not interested in walking. He is a happy healthy normal boy.
My dd still walks on tippy toes. I think she does it for fun sometimes. Like she also decides to crawl instead of walk even at 17mths- sometimes it's just fun to be different.
She only now will wave and clap a lot. She could do it before but chose not to. She babbles a lot and copies us. But only confidently says- mum, dad and baba (bottle). The rest is usually mimicking - she will say cracker when I say it. But if she wants a cracker will just point and say 'more more more'
Sounds all completely normal to me. If you are worried just ask your GP next time you see them. Otherwise just enjoy the fun and silliness a toddler brings to a home. : )
Thanks ladies. I can't believe out of so many milestones these ones are worrying me and consuming me the most. I spent so much time yesterday trying to show him how to point but he just looked at me. I wonder if there was all this milestone stuff when our mums had us.
