My little girl will be 9 months this week and 2 weeks ago she had a cough that would not go away. Since we were going on a 10 day vacation I ran her into the Dr. Since we are delaying shots she does not go to the Dr. often so I get the development questions asked anytime I bring her in. When he got to the "talking" part he seemed to not believe me with my answer. He asked if she babbled and I said yes and she says many words. he refused to believe me until she answered him when he was talking to her! lol

She says; hi, yes, no, okay, bye, cat, hey, go, baba (bottle), mama, and dada. And it is not babble she will even answer you if you ask her a question, although most are "no" lol

I am a talker and so is my hubby so I don't know if she just gets it from hearing us or what! lol Its funny she talks but has 0 teeth! lol

Does anyone else have an early talker?

My son also began speaking at 9 mths and is now 11 mths and has at least 15 words ( I made a list a few days ago) I don't know what directly effects early talking, but I have always spoken to him and have been reading to him since very early on .... who knows, but it is so adorable :)

My little girl was the same way! Took her to the doctor at about 9 months and when the dr. walked in she said "Hi Dr. Rae." Dr almost fell over and told her she wasn't supposed to be doing that. Shocked me cause she was SO shy she wouldn't talk to anyone but her dad and me...so nobody believed us either.

She started montessori at 3 (in September), and when I picked her up after their Christmas program, her teacher said "Tiffany can talk!" I said "what?" She had NEVER skoken one word before then. lol

She had NO teeth until she was 11 months old, and then they came in 3-4 at a time. That was fun...

My son only said Mama, Dada, BugBug (his aunty), Uh-Oh, and Hey at 9 months but by his 1st bday he was saying way more than the average word or 2 at least 50+ words. Now he is 20 months and I crack up at the things he comes out with.

YES! My son started just a bit after your daughter, but had same experience at the doc at 12 month and 15 month visits. By 15 months, 50 words and was doing 2-word combos. Doc's mouth dropped. I had no idea that was early. By 17 months, full sentences, and before19 months, stringing sentences together, asking simple questions, telling how he felt and what he dreamt, and even reminiscing, ie "mommy, remember when...." And by 22 months, talking about the future. When this...then that. One day...etc. He's now 25 months and speaks like 3 year old girls and older boys. We've never found a kid his age who speaks even as he did 6 months ago. Keep me posted on your daughter. It's a gift to be able to get to know your child's thoughts so early on.

My son is an early talker to, which is unusal for a boy, but I talk a lot so it must be genetic lol. anyway he says mama, dada, baba, num-nums, dat ( for that if he wants something) and his newest word is uh-oh. The other day we were looking out the window at the cars and he kept repeating me and saying car. No believes me that he says all those words except his babysitter who definatly believes me she hears him talk non-stop all day and is always telling me what he is saying lol.

my daughter will be 9 months on the 9th. She says hi, momma, dadda, num-nums, & I love you. most people don't belive that she says I love you but she does and it comes out pretty clear! We tell her that we love her all the time plus she has a doll that says it too.

Madeline says a few words too.. mama, dada, hi, hello, and hungry. She also nods her head for no and shakes it (and most of the rest of her little body goes with it) for yes. Still no teeth, but since still I'm breast feeding her I'm grateful for that!

Nyree says mum dad gran nan boo and woof woof, she has 3 teeth, we try to encourage her more but it is slow aat the minute, she tries to say yes but it just sounds like s at the moment, hopefully wont be too long now, she fully understands what shes saying and will often play the boo game, she copies the dogs when they bark so i dont think its unusual at all at this age for them to pick up on certain words and copy!

B is just over 8 months. He can manage:
Yea (excitedly, not really an answer)
Uh-Uh (Everything is always "uh-uh")
Mama
Kaki (this is his effort at "daddy")
Moo
Hi
PooPoo
Okay (He's been saying this since he was SUPER little)
No

A lot of times though he winds up just blowing raspberries or grunting. I read that kids either focus on walking first or talking first. Brandon seems more focused on walking.

YES!!! Gabrielle will be 9 months on the 16th she says mama, dada, baba, lala, papa (real name of a person), nana (real), kitty kitty, book, at at, I get, I got, I did, did it, that, this, heeeey, hi,up, yeah, eat, than ew (thank you)...there's more but I can't think of them right now.

Mine turned 8 months on the 16th and she says Mama, Dada & Yeah regularly. She nods her head yes when you ask her something. She's a big babbler though aside from what we can understand and she likes to "sing". She only has 2 teeth but more seem to be following.

my son was saying "hi", "Dada", "baba", "Mama", and he would answer "ya" and "no" and he said "i did it" at 6 months and my doctor would not believe me either, she tried to brush it off as if he were just "babbling" and when i told her that he pull himself up and walk along the furniture she didn't believe me at all. It pissed me off because i was so proud of him and she treated me like i was making it up. he just got his first 2 teeth in a month ago ( he was 8 months old)

My 8 1/2 month old is babbler but no talking yet. My mom, my husband and I are constantly talking to him and doing the repetitions but he just babbles. My mother says that my sisters and I all talked by 8 months so I really do think it's a girl thing!

My Daughter is 8 months now... when she was 6 and a half months, she was saying "Dada" "Hi Daddy" "yeah" and "hi" At 7 and a half months she started "mama" and "baba" (which is actually "baba black sheep" song... we don't use "bottle" we use "milk") No one believes me either! Oh well! =) I am also teaching her sign language... have been for 3 months. She knows and can do "dog" and "up" she also knows milk, eat, sleep, more, finished, book, and ball. She can't do those yet, although she's trying to do milk, eat and bye. Soon, I think! As for two, she has two on the bottom, and I need the top two to poke through so I can have my daughter back until the next make their way up! ;)

yup,, my sons a babbler... but my friends little girl was walking by 10mths and quite a good talker before reaching a year old. All the babys are different and i find it facinating looking at the different ages when going to baby groups,, some are brillant at one thing and others a totally different thing,, but they all learn from each other its great.

I have a 6 1/2 yr old daughter and a 8 month old son. My daughter was an early talker, she was speaking in full sentences by 1. Now my son at 8 months only says mamma, dada, baba even though i speak to him constantly and say different words to him all the time. So i think its a girl thing! :)

OMG 8 teeth! I'm jealous! lol jk I ask Addyson where her teeth are every day joking around and she just smiles! lol

Its funny but we just returned from our long vacation, and it was not until we were on the plane she really got into babbling! lol

[deleted account]

my sonis nearly 9 months, he bables like mad esp when he is concentrating and says things that sound like words but noting on purpose yet. He smiles and babbles to the cats (we have 3) and he understands more of what you are saying then you think!
