Here in the last few weeks Easton vocabulary has exploded. With that especially in I'd say the last week he has started. "ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma me hungry" etch Its not every time but I have noticed it many times through out the day. I didn't know if stuttering is more the sounds m m m m or if him repeating the first word? Like just now he came to me "me me me me me wants something to eat ma".

Thoughts ladies.....

Re: stuttering?
Layla is going through the same thing. One of my sons did too. Don't point it out, speak slower when talking to them, giving them your full attention.

Chase says "uh, uh, uh..whatever he is going to say" when he gets in a hurry.

Re: stuttering?
I agree with not pointing it out and just slowing down when talking to him. Also giving him the time to talk is great, sometimes their brains are going so fast the words have a hard time getting out fluidly.
I wouldn't be worries yet :)

Re: stuttering?
My son is 4 and gets speech for stuttering. He started at two and it was considered normal then. The SLP that evaled him then said as they rapidly expand vocab, they tend to do this. It's when it doesn't resolve after about 6 months they start to be more concerned. Owen is still stuttering after two years, so that is why he gets direct services now. What we are told to do is never interrupt or finish his sentences for him, even if we 100% know what he is trying to tell us. Give him direct eye contact while he talks and if that isn't possible (like driving) say "I am listening, what do you need to tell me?". Also, once he does get the sentence out repeat it back slowly to him to reinforce how he can slow it down to get it out without the stutter. So if he says "I I I I want some juice" after he finishes, we say "You are telling me you want some juice." in a slow calm manner. I will say it got a lot harder when Natalie started talking because I notice his stuttering get worse when he is tired, when she is talking and he has to talk over her and when there is background noise he is competing with. Also, if he is trying to recall a long story about school (what he did at circle time, etc.) he stutters as he thinks and talks at the same time.

Re: stuttering?
I haven't noticed it too much with Teresa, but it did happen with Lukas when he was having to try really hard to figure out what words he wanted to tell us.

I wouldn't worry unless it becomes more often than not. ;)

Re: stuttering?
My nephew went through this and everyone has given great advice. His was a stage that only lasted 6 months. If it lasts longer than that, I'd go seek advice from an EI specialist.

Re: stuttering?
Eli has little episodes of this when he is:
A) Telling a story or talking a lot all at one time
B) Excited and trying to talk fast
C) Not really looking at me or being distracted by something else while talking a lot

I think in his case, it is normal... but I'll be watching it. It happens rarely, but we have had episodes like you've described.
