I was talking to a friend the other day and her doctor suggests a 12 mos old should speak about 20 words, and at 18 mos, they should say about 30-50 words? I think I've lost count of what my soon to be 17 months old can say.. but my husband and I have also been the type who doesn't care about "statistics"., and let her grow up in her own time. We think what's more important is she understands what we are saying to her.. and we think she understands us about 90% of the time. that's why we are extra careful when around her.. we don't want her to pick up words she shouldn't be using...
