Sounds like Greek: Baby babble can often sound like a different language from the family. The child's interaction and engagement make the suspicion of autism low at this time. If there is a concern continue to monitor his development with your pediatrician.

Is family greek?: I hope your family speaks greek. I would not be concered about autism if he smiles and is interactive. How many children do you have? second and subsequent children speak later than first children. Have his hearing tested. Keep talking to him, reading to him and keep interacting with him.
