I'd like a few other opinions. I have a 27 month old who has typical receptive language. I think he is quite intelligent. He will use two and three word phrases consistently. Here's the kicker...sometimes he just points and whines for easy things like go bye-bye. He can get very frustrated if he is pointing at the refrigerator and can't verbalize what he wants. What do you think? Other times he will have the word for the item. What do you think?
