IDK about that study - I would think they would catch up before age 16.

Shannon, I was thinking the same thing at first because Jim has a huge vocabulary, but then I think about a lot of his NICU friends who just don't talk that much. I mean, I assume they'll catch up when they're in elementary school, but maybe not?
