I'm sure it will come, for both our little guys. They keep trying to talk.

I think it sounds like he is ok, but I understand you being concerned. It's good to keep an eye on it but try not to obsess over it....which is what I do whenever I am worried. LOL
Kelsey gets speech therapy...speech therapist says pointing is great....also making a sound even if it doesn't sound anything like the word is fine in the beginning.....and also speaking with the inflection that you are saying sounds great.

Have you looked at an Ages & Stages Questionnaire to see where Will may fall in his development? I don't know enough about home visitor programs overall, but I know the home visitor/early intervention programs in my area use this evaluation to gauge where babies are in their development. When I was worried about E's gross motor and was told about Ages & Stages, I googled the heck out of it so I could see where he was in his development! I found a website that had the questionnaires accessible to anyone, but didn't provide you with the scoring sheet. (It scored it for you and then simply told you whether your child was on track or if your child may be behind).

This website is even better because it provides you the scoring sheet too, so you can see exactly where your child is!! I was actually looking for the original website I found, so I could post it on here, and found this one instead. What luck!

E's PT did the gross mother questions with him this week (from the 14 and 16 month questionnaires), and he is still in the black on both but getting better!! She let me have the whole evaluation so I could check the rest of his development. He is GREAT in everything else but communication. And he's still fine on that, but scored 35. So I'll just keep an eye on it. I am glad to see that he is still considered typical though... I was getting worried seeing everyone on here talking about all the words their little ones are saying!

Miles is nowhere near saying 20 words. He does say mama, dada and ball like it's his job but that's about it. He's smart as a whip and understands about 98% of the stuff that comes out of my mouth, though. And he babbles like crazy! He has some made up words - grapes and blueberries are both "bumbows" and the deep fryer on our counter is a "bowbleebow" . I will mention it at his 18 month appointment next month but overall I'm not too worried. Miles was late with several of his milestones for the first year so perhaps he'll just be a late talker, too. I've heard boys sometimes are prone to being late and then having a verbal explosion between 18-24 months anyway.
