lisping in a 2.5 yr old?

I have noticed dd1 (2.5), who talks fairly well, has started lisping, I just wondered if anyone knows whether this is 'normal' at this age or a sign of a future lisp?

A bf-counsellor spotted a tongue-tie when she was about 6 weeks old, but it wasn't snipped, and I wondered whether this could be the cause, as I notice that she can't stick her tongue out very far. Thankyou.

dont worry at this age. at 2.5 a childs speech sound system is still developing.i'm a speech therapist and would advise you not to worry about it. x
