Comparing to siblings?

I have 3 children, the oldest 2 were quick at doing most things. But I was one of those annoying "my baby walked at 10 months" etc. Now I know my youngest is my last so I'm cherishing every moment of him being small. He seemed to be later doing most things - rolling, sitting up, crawling, walking etc but we really weren't bothered. We kind of just thought he would do them in his own time.

So youngest is 2 years 2 months and his understanding is fantastic. He can point to specific animals or objects when asked, will get a certain toy and just generally follow commands without any issues.
But he doesn't say many words. If I say "that's a dog, you say dog" he won't repeat. He will say words at his own pace.
He can approximately 20 words, but doesn't say them super often.

Our theory has always been - he will do it in his own time. But now I'm slightly concerned that I'm maybe being abit too relaxed about it.

Should I be worried?
