    @irene: oh hmm. I heard they are covered for free services until age two. What a bummer. I wonder if that's new. I'll have to check that out. My son is doing great! To be honest I can't be sure if he is having delays or not but I waiver so I decided to just have him evaluated instead of worrying all the time. I hope your situation improves quickly. Your son sounds very bright and capable. My mom is dyslexic by the way and though it does cause her some trouble she is also one of the most well read and intelligent people I know. She reads medical journals for fun! Once diagnosed it can be very eat to work around any mild delay I think. Especially in our day and age.

    I know a few asian male friends who have difficulty with a few colors (they have a hard time distinguishing red from purple for instance) and they are EXTREMELY smart. I have heard from them that it is pretty common and not something that has ever held them back! It might just be too early for your son to understand colors at this point.

    @irene: first off, I don't think you're crazy! If I was surrounded by little geniuses, I would be a little concerned, too! But keep in mind that a genius as age 2 doesn't constitute a genius at age 3, 4, 5 and 15. Just because all your friends kids seem advanced now doesn't mean they'll continue at that pace. I would not dismiss your son as behind in anyway because he may just outpace them all in a few years. It's way too young to know.

    My DD is 19 months and she's not at all talking much. She babbles a lot and says things that kind of sound like expressions, but it's not clear at all. I'm not worried because she's a happy kid. She's friendly, snugly, and very social. For now, I'm content that she can be a kid without any pressures. There's a lot of time for all that later.

    BTW, I'm very impressed with your son's word count!

    @brownie: yes, this is true (eating and speech problems usually coexist). Turns out my son has some difficulties chewing, which means he is super picky about his food. Now that he is in speech therapy with a feeding component with an oral motor specialist, he is actually trying small bites of new foods and speaking more clearly.
