My daughter is 11 months and she says mama, dada, eat eat, ba-ba, hey, uh-huh, no-aint, and she can call her brother and sister by their names. She just started giving kisses but she always turns her cheek for you to give her one first. LOL then she gives u one. She loves waving bye, and motioning for someone to come to her.

Ya know, sometimes we are our own worst enemies, with all this comparison stuff...! :) I was reading some of your posts and thinking my little 12 month old was behind. Then I came to my senses and thought, "who cares? He's gonna talk eventually, right? So why does it matter when?" It's fun to brag and compare,but if your little one is one of the ones who is still enjoying the baby babble- enjoy it too, and don't worry about what other babies are doing! Every LO is different!

My son is 11 months old. He says mama, dada, ki ki (kitty), mum mum, and mo (more). He just started making nanana sound and babbles alot. He randomly waves, sometimes does the baby sign for more on his own, and claps a lot. Gives mama only open mouth kisses. Love that!

My daughter who was also born 7/16/09 still just babbles..sometimes she says Mama but when she wants to..not when i ask her too..she is a true comedian..she does move her lips a lot to try to form words but she hasn't spoken them out loud..she does understand what you are saying because the other day I told her to get her ball and bring it to me (crawling) and she went for the ball..but she kept it for herself and didn't bring it back..lol..but the point is she understood me..it was amazing!

My baby is almost 11 months (7/13/09) and he starting say dada months ago but only recently do I think he associates it with his daddy and for the longest time he said mum mum a lot... a few weeks ago I realized he meant mama (that's what I call myself) and encouraged him to say 'mama' instead and so now he follows me around the house and crawls up and says 'mama' the rest I think is just jiberish (or maybe we just don't realize what he is saying?) he waves sometimes but isn't very consitant

That's amazing! My little Brayden doesn't say much of anything yet. He can say "bye" and "dada". That's about the extent of what he says that I understand. The rest is babble

She's also doing the rest of what you mentioned..she LOVES giving kisses! On the flip side she still isn't crawling or anything though..she can scoot and roll her way around but that's about it.

Summer has been talking since 6/7months saying dada, bob, mama, papa, cat, carley,daddy, tia, no, yes, bum (cock! of all things, no idea why) hello byebye, tar. However shes 11 months now, and i think shes only just starting to work out that the words mean something as before now shes just used them randomly.

Just wanted to add, its totally normal for babies to have barely any or no vocabulary at this age. My son didnt say much until 2, after that his speech took off and he hasnt looked back.

My daughter is 11 months old, just in the last week she has started saying quite a few things ( before then all she said was mamma, dadda and bubba) she has now added hello, bye bye, that, yes, no and get that ( I always say I'll get that when she points to something, now she points and says get dat) she also tries to bark when she sees a dog. I cant believe the improvement in just over a week!

My son is 11 months old today and he doesn't really say much but he babbles all the time. He says mama and he goes muwah to blow kisses. He indentifes objects when asked to find them and will fetch his ball from another room when asked where it is. He is super smart so I am not really concerned with his talking yet. If his babble is anything to go by once he does talk he won't shut up! LOL!

[deleted account]

My 10 month old says mama, mom, dada, dad, nana, cat, ball, all wet, waldo (wallo it sounds like), puff, car. She waves, claps hands, does how big by streatching up her hands. She walks with the couch or holding hands. She trys to stand up alone but falls quickly.

My daughter just turned 10 months! She just started saying dada, mama(sometimes), and hi (sometimes) and boo.
She claps when she thinks she's done something well, does high five and also does this E.T thing too which i taught her:) She gives kisses to anyone who asks for it (I get jealous sometimes haha) And she tosses the ball back and forth with me. She turns her head left to right when she doesn't want something. Her doctor told me that she could be a little late in words because we are bilingual, but highly encouraged us to use both languages so that she can be fluent in both!

My DD says mama, dada, light, that?, ( while pointing at something), all done, byebye, hey... she seems to understand alot more things than she can say... she hums tunes to music she hears and loves dancing! I think she will learn to walk pretty soon... she crawls on her feet, not on her knees...its like she is walking on all fours...we call it her spider walk...she crawls the regular way too but when she wants to go fast she gets up on her feet and hands and goes... Anyone else have a strange crawler?

Lots of different babbly sounds! Mama, dada, bubububub, boat sounds, ap ap for apple, Oh Oh for her sister. And she signs the word 'more' when she wants more food!

I agree about signing. I did it more with my first daughter but not as much this time around. Olivia does sign a bit: Milk, more and eat. My older daughter at this age could sign milk, more, eat, please, cup, help, yes, car, book, baby, and afew others, she is 3 now and still signs please and thank you sometimes and helps 'teach' her sister some of the signs we still use.

We get lots of wet slobbery kisses, big hugs, she waves hi and bye.
I didn't realize she talks so much until I started writing down the word she can say this morning. I guess you kind of stop keeping track after a while, though I don't remember my older daughter saying so much at this age.
Olivia's words are: mama, dada and daddy, num nums, yum yum ,bye bye, no no, all done, gu gow (good girl), ta ta, up, atush (no touch), si dow (sit down), bum (because I am always telling her to sit down on her bum, stinky (said while she scrunches up her nose), shoes, and lots of baby babble that occasionally sounds like real words

Amber Z... have you tried signing? Maybe he's more into actions than words. This is AWESOME! I do it with my daughter and she's communicating a lot faster now. The trick is to be consistent, and their signs won't always look like ours, you kinda have to pay close attention. I know a few moms who do this and ALL say it's 100% worth it!

A little... she's 10 mos and 1 day =D Says Dada, just started Mama, hi, mmmmm, and aaahhhh (when opening her mouth to eat). She signs though... she'll sign milk, eat, up, teeth, dog, finished, and more. She's more of a monkey see monkey do kid. She'll use a remote control and a phone properly... she'll watch what we DO rather than listen to what we try to teach her and she copies our actions more. She'll lay on a pillow and pull a blanket on her, or press her cheek to mine and go "mmmmm" all because we do it. She also hugs and kisses and pets the dog (we're leaning "gentle" hehe)

My little one is just 10 months and is Bi-Lingual, German and English. He has been speaking since around 7 months and he can now say. Mama, Papa, Oma (german, Grandma), Opa (German, Grandpa), Nien (German, No), No, Snuggle, Tiger, hiya, Bye in German, Grandma and there are more but I can not remember right now! He has also been putting 3 words together usally with und (and) so Mama und Papa. He points at what he wants to say, so he would point at me and then his papa.

My daughter just turned 10 months and has been saying "Mama" for a long time already (my fiance use to say it was jibberish but HAH he was wrong) and dada, bye and German people we know swear she says "Jah" which is yes in German. I tried to teach her Daddy's name was "puppy" lol

Thanks Lexi! That is what I figured - he babbles all the time so I know it's a matter of time. Plus, I figure once he starts it doesn't stop :)

Amber, I don't think you need to worry yet. Check out these two articles for a little reassurance:

http://www.babycenter.com/0_developmenta...

http://www.justmommies.com/articles/baby...

I was a really late talker and so I don't have any expectations of my son at this age. If he starts talking soon, great, if he hardly says a word until he's almost 4 (like me) then that's ok too. I had an extensive vocabulary once I did start talking. =)

wow some of your babies say a lot!! Torsten mostly just babbles but it's starting to flow like a conversation now. He'll also try to imitate sounds when we talk to him. When he gets really upset he'll say a long drawn out maaamaaaaaaa and on mothers day he grabbed my husband by the legs and said dada. Most of the time tho it's just a long run of sounds, exmp: mamamammmmamadamagbuhbuhbuhbuhguhmama squeal grunt, etc...... lol he keeps us thoroughly entertained with his chattering!

Abby just turned 10 months on the 24th but we haven't had any words yet. She does a lot of babbling and repeating like "bababababababa" "dadadadadada" and the other morning I woke up to "lalalalalalala" but nothing we could understand. She's just started waving and will give open mouth kisses occasionally (but so far, only to Mommy!). Can't wait to hear a first word! :)
