Wordless Toddlers

Anderson still isn't talking, despite the fact that he is about a week away from turning 18 months old. For the most part, he gets his point made, but his lack of speech definitely comes with frustrations, on both sides of our "conversations." Case in point...

Anderson: (Pointing randomly over Jackson's shoulder) "Eh."
Jackson: (Picking up Anderson's sippy cup and giving it to his brother) "Here you go little buddy."
Anderson: (Throwing the sippy cup and still pointing randomly over Jackson's shoulder) "Eh."
Jackson: (Picking up Anderson's ball and giving it to his brother) "Want your ball? Here you go."
Anderson: (Throws the ball, and not in a pleased way, still pointing randomly over Jackson's shoulder) "Eh."
Jackson: (Picking up Anderson's truck and giving it to his brother) "Here's your truck. How about that?"
Anderson: (Drops the truck on the ground and melts down into a puddle of toddler tantrum, looks up and points randomly over Jackson's shoulder) "EH!!!!"
Jackson: (Looking around and giving up) "You really should learn to talk, Anderson. You're life would be so much easier."

I have no words..ha! Both my kids were talkers. I really have no idea about what to say to that other than it's got to be frustrating. Maybe if you all just quit doing his bidding for trivial things when he goes 'eh' and then it might force him into trying to make a word. I DUNNO. Hope this gets better for you soon cuz it sounds hard. And kudos to Jackson for sticking it out for a while. LOL
