My 2 year old DS is learning new words daily, but he often only picks up on parts of the words. So for example, shower is "hower", socks is "ocks", etc. Usually it's the first part of the word that he drops off, but sometimes it is the end. Just wondering if this is normal speech progression or indication of a delay? He puts some words together in short sentences, but I can tell that he is sometimes trying to say much more but just can't get it out yet. He is learning both English and Spanish at home, so I think this probably accounts somewhat for the struggle to get words out. But, I've really been noticing the partially formed words lately and wondering if it is an issue.
Our ped wasn't too concerned at his 2 year visit, but I didn't point out this issue specifically. I could almost swear that my firstborn came out speaking in full sentences, so it is hard for me to compare them and not worry just a little!
