Yup. Kids develop speech at very different speeds and it doesn't matter if another kid is easier to understand as long as they are getting their sounds at the proper time (th is the last - and it is fine for a kid to mispronounce th until they turn 8!). My youngest was much easier to understand than his older brother for a while and Adrian had some sounds Fritz didn't, but even though Fritz had speech therapy, those missing sounds were not an issue because they were age appropriate (his problem was mostly trying to talk too fast).
