I am wondering how many of the babies out there that were born in April 2009 are talking yet.

My little girl is only saying "mom" "dad" and "nan." She knows what a lot of words mean, but she doesn't have any interest in talking. Only jabbering :)

My lil guy says several things but I wouldn't worry too much as long as your baby is babbling things are ok because each baby develops differently.... my oldest was a year and half before he really talked but my daughter was talking at 9 months....so just hang in there...trust me once they start talking they never stop....hope this helps :-)

My little girl was born April 30th 2009. She's says Dada, papa, duck, dog, Audra (my sister's name), & don't do. She also "ooooo's " alot, & "roar's", says "oo,oo" when you ask her what the monkey says, & kinda says "bark, bark" when you talk about a dog.

My little girl says mumma, daddy, arnie (our dog) and doggie. It is really funny because the way she says doggie sounds a lot like daddy and everything that is furry, has 4 legs and floppy ears is a 'doggie' so when the big bear from 'Bear in the Big Blue House' comes on TV she shouts out Doggie!! But sounds very like Daddy! Makes me laugh every time :)

My daughter is 12.5 months. She started walking at 9.5 months so often the physical development takes precedent over verbal skills for a while. She can say Momma, Up, Meow for cat, and Baa baa for sheep, and woof for dog. Still hasn't said dadda. She understands over 100 words though. It's amazing what they soak up at this age.

My son was an early walker (9 months) and an early talker he turned one on 4-19 and he already knows over 30 words. He can identify things and he understands much more than this. I think just talking about everything we are doing while he is playing or even when I am doing chores or shopping just giving names to everything has really helped him. He says ma ma, da da, hi, hey, hat, hug, I got it, giggle giggle giggle, I got it, no no no, bug bug bug, all done, and many more. We are working on body parts the only one he can say is eye but he can point to eye, ear, nose, mouth, tongue, hair, toes, foot, tummy, and hand.

Mine has words for Mommy, Daddy, and "more" and sounds like she's saying Yes and na-na-na for "no" (she'd shaking her head back and forth as she says this) and ba-ba for bye bye

Besides ma-ma & da-da, my son says: uh-oh, cat, ite (for light), ish (fish), no-no & shakes head, baby, bye-bye. Yesterday he said "gito" whatever that means!?!? :) Maybe he is learning another language. LOL

Our daughter 12 months and 3 weeks isn't saying anything. Everything is "ba." She does get excited when we tell her she's going bye-bye and she'll start repeating "ba" so we praise her for that, but she says the same thing about book, da-da, ma-ma, ect... Our doctor wants to have her hearing tested and take her to speech therapy, but I thought that was a bit of an overreaction.

My son, Matthew, was born April 30, 2009 and is talking. I read in an article that by the age of 18mo, most babies can say about 10 words. If this is true, then my son should be much older than he is. LOL! He speaks about 3x as many words and even speaks some small sentences. He also says "please" and "thank you" without me having to tell him! I think it's so cute how they learn to talk. I tell my older daughters (14 and 10) that there baby brother is a walking tape recorder!!

My little man is saying Dada, Mama, ball, dog and making some animal sounds (though besides Meow and Woof they all sounds like growls - he really likes growls!). That is about it. I have 2 older girls, and I think that is about where they were at this age, as well. He also says Up, On and Off and a couple others I can't think of right now.

hi. this thread has some great posts! it is so fun to hear the sweet stories about other babies first words ---- and to have to smile at myself and admit that my "genius" is in good company :-)
John babbles A LOT and has many specific sounds that have meaning but aren't really words yet like a variation of mom for G'ma, IEE for his sister Ivy , Dah for his brother Dan,mmmm when he wants a drink , ka for cat, dat/dis (that/this with pointing at stuff), nini (goodnight before bed),and he tries to whinney, bark, and meow. He loves to say quack ! --yes, we live on a farm !)--things he says fairly clearly are mom, dog,book,ball, up, truck and no. I wish someone in the family spoke another language , my cousin lives in Germany and his daughter has been bilingual since she was a baby -- although she mixes english and German in the same sentences still. I have been looking into either the my baby can read or muzzy programs......i don't want to push him, i just want him to LEARN as much as he can while he's so curious about everything around him. I hope everyone is enjoying their young ones first introductions to a new season --- john is a little afraid of grass !

Our baby turned one 4/9/09 and he says the following:

I have to second the "your baby can read" comment. My l/o (April 2009) was 8wks early and babbles A LOT, she says bye bye, baby, and Bottle. I think I caught a momma in there but it may be wishful thinking. Aside from talking my daughter understands so much, and yes she does sing her heart out with your baby can read. I think it's a fantastic program and not a gimmick. She watches so intently and do not even think of bothering her when her show is on. I could play the same disc over and over and she loves it. She follows along and has exibited signs of serious learning from it. I am a fan!

My little girl can say quite a lot of words well - mum, dad, nana, papa, baby, star, cat, bag, fish, shoes. She can also tell you that a lion says 'raar' and a monkey says 'ee-ee oo-oo'. Now she's is having a go at repeating most words we introduce her to.

My little girl is speaking a lot, all the normal words mummy,daddy, bye bye, hello etc plus joining words together sometimes three in a row. She also knows all our four cats by name and gets it right every time but she is not walking yet only just pulling herself up on the furniture so it will be a while. I've heard they are either walkers or talkers so I guess she's the latter!

My baby boy just turned 1 and only says, dada and baba but not directly to us. I do speak portuguese to him and I wonder if that would be the reason why he's not talking yet!

My son isn't really talking yet. he is trying to say words, he just isn't real consistent. he still likes to talk in his own language of made up words. he just started saying a few things, like duck and door and he calls his ball a dall.

My daughter is definitely talking. She learns around 3-4 words per week now (without us prompting her). She is up to 30 words that are recognizable by more than just me and my husband. I wouldn't worry if yours isn't talking yet, babies all develop at different rates.
