Host: Two month olds are -- Henry Joseph Hasson: So an 18 month old is starting to develop the language even more, they are starting to have more words and more vocabulary, they should start asking for their bottles and juice or milk whatever it is. Then again here, language is variable, and you have some kids with only a few words, and you have some kids who are already putting two words together and trying to make sentences, but what a parent need to look for is that they are speaking, that they are making language, they are pointing for what they want, then and there, and these are all things that a mother should look for -- what a pediatricians should look for. Children are also then start growing better, they should start being able to climb stairs, yeah, they might need some help, but they should have the strength to be able to start kicking and throwing things, kicking a ball maybe, and really playing with objects.
