What Happened to the Cookies?

When my daughter was 15 months old, she wasn’t talking. Her older brother started talking around 12 months, maybe before. I started to panic! A friend of mine was an early childhood specialist and asked me, “does she NEED to talk?” I was confused by her question, but she continued by asking, “when her brother...
