My girls, being twins, are at risk for speech delay and I was wondering what other babies their age (13 months) are saying. They say and understand the words mum, dad, hi, and up. They understand and try to say ball, bye, milk and more but are not consistent. They are good enough that I can understand them but I am sure no one else would. One of my daughters also signs quite a few things: eat, milk, more, hat, ball, shoe, and uses help if she wants me to open something but she hardly ever talks right now. The other daughter doesn't sign much at all and seems more interested in talking... but so far hasn't made much progress. They understand dog, cat, monkey, bird, ballon, book, and Elmo but do not communicate these yet. Does this sound about where your kids are at in regards to speech development?
