    My daughter did this. She had a very advanced vocab by age 18mo. When my son was born she was 22 mo and the postpartum nurse could not believe how vocal she was when she visited me in the hospital...anyway about the time she hit 2.5 yrs she started stuttering - a friend of ours is a speech therapist and she sat down with her one afternoon to make me feel better...bottom line? Her brain was going MUCH faster than her mouth could make the words...she couldn't speak as fast as she was thinking up what to say. My friend said not to worry unless it persisted beyond age 5 - it didn't.

    My twenty-nine yr old son stuttered at the age of 2 1/2 yrs , and the problem resolved with no intervention. I think it probably is something to do with the thought process being ahead of the speech process, but my son quit after awhile and had no speech problems afterward. To be on the safe side you could tell the peditrician about it, altho I don't think it's anything to worry about, it never hurts to check it out.
