My little 28 week preemie is now 2 years old.. She just turned 2 on march 27th. Boy time really flies!
I was just curious as to what your preemies were doing speechwise at this age. She is saying like 95 or more words and says a few 2 word phrases like, "good girl, hey dude, hi dad, etc." she definitely knows what i am talking about when I say ANYTHING. Does this sound good to you? Is this where she's supposed to be?
Are you part of the NICU club? Do you have a child who is still struggling with the effects of being born too soon from preeclampsia? Share your concerns and stories here among parents who have been there.

That sounds really great! There is a website, which I found through a google search for toddler speech milestones that I thought was great at showing the ranges etc... 95 words is amazing!
Thanks.. It's just that I went to her 2 year appt. the other day and we saw the nurse practitioner instead of her regular Pedi. I asked all of the verbal communication questions and she said "well if she doesn't get better by 6 months from now we can consider sending her to a speech therapist." She said all of this without even asking how many words she was saying or if she understood what I said or anything. I thought almost 100 words was great for her age?! I am not a big fan of that nurse anyways.. she offers too much "parenting advice" and adds in things about her own experiences ALL the time..
