I don't know about you all but my daughter is a little talker. She says: Mom, Dad, Pop pop, me, hi, hey, yeah, yes, ball, bird, Its a ball, its a bird, Deuce (our dogs name), pretty (sounds like pty), kitty (sounds like tea tea), uh oh, num num and bob (for boob). She talks and talks and talks but will not walk. Not can't but won't. Little brat will only walk if I am holding her hand (one hand) or if she has her hand on something.

i can't believe the amount of words my daughter knows now, considering she didn't start talking until like 14mths. I mean she said Mama and Dada at like 9mths. But that was it for the longest time. Now shes like a little baby dictionary. Here are just a few of the words she uses daily: Mom, Dad, G-ma, Hello(sounds more like Ello), Uh-Huh, Yep, Buh-Bye, Uh-Oh, Backpack(from dora, soo cute when she says it), dog, woof, meow(sounds more like ow), ho ho(for santa), owie(when she hurts herself), toot toot(for a train), whoo(for an owl), moo, blankie(sounds more like inky), moon, mwah(when she blows kisses), Pa-Pa(for grandpa), fish(sounds more like fsh haha) thats all i can think of right now, but im sure there more. She also knows most of her body parts, like to point to them when i ask, and she understands alot of commands(things asked of her)

My daughter is 17 months and is really picking up on a lot of words. She says mama, dada, kitty cat, dog, bird, santa (and if you ask what santa says, she says ho, ho, ho), eyes, ears, toes, uh oh, outside, sit down, shoes, socks, hat, sleep, lunch, burp, poop, baby, I do (when she wants you to let her do something herself), jacket, ba ba, bath, cheese, cracker, juice, apple, all done, and dada erk (dada's at work) and dada home. She also knows the animal sounds if you ask her what they say for cow, dog, cat, owl, pig, monkey, snake, and she even does "argh" for a pirate. She started walking at 10 months and she runs now. She doesn't have a slow speed!

My 18 month old has been walking(more like running from us) for about 5 or 6 months now, but he started talking at about 6 months or so. He says many more words than I expected out of him at 18 months. He says mama, daddy, my mama, my daddy, Dixie (our dog, he also howls at her and barks at her if she does either), papa, pappy, Me-Me, mine, bite bite, shoes, socks, please (sounds like peas he emphasizes a bit on the "s" if we don't hear him), thank you, ball (his favorite thing and one of his first words), Jesus (jay-zus), baby, Kasie(cousin), Dodie(cousin), Paci(pacifier), Spongebob(he leaves off the "s" for some reason and says ponge-bob), pizza, chicken, dinosaurs(dinazores), one, two, peep-eye, cheese, bye-bye, hey, apple, uh oh, sit, night night, plus many more I can't think of at the moment and he copies EVERYTHING we say.

My daughter is 17 months old, she can follow instructions to clap, wave goodbye and sign "gone" (claps and pulls her hands apart sideways). Mostly she reaches her hands out to things and grunts wanting me to grab it for her. She can say mum, dada, teddeh (teddy), gook gook (dog) and has the most infectious, gorgous laughter in the world. I love her to bits!!! :D

my 14 month old talks often...but nothing i can make out! haha. He was saying "dat" for that for a while, but he stopped that. He says something like mom and dad, but the rest of his words i cant really make out. He has started signing back to me, since i try to sign to him all the signs i know. I have heard though if they focus on either phyical (walking) more or talking more, the other skill lags a little bit. So my son is more physical and practices with climbing, walking, and running more than he does with talking.

My daughter, she has a mouth full of teeth, several of them are coming in all at once. She has been saying ball and dog, a lot. We have a house dog named Cotton. She trys to say Cotton, but it comes out as Cot...It is adorable when they develope a personality with thier speech...She has quite the temper when she doesn't get her way, then she grunts and goes uh...needless to say, she has been doing that a lot, due to her teething...very cranky, of late.

Charlette wont walk either, she will walk along the couch but thats it. She used to walk when I held her hand but now she wont even stand up! Shes 13months tomorrow. However she says mum, dad, nan, pop, king (dogs name) dog, cat, car, woof, buba, ta, sshh, tap, hot, yes, nah, yeah, she loves books, when I say wheres the dog she points to the dog and does the same for cat, banana, elephant and watch. I think they just learn at their own pace. I'm not too worried about her walking i have a physio come once a month to check on her and there doesn't seem to be anything wrong. :o)

They really grow up fast! I have a 9 yr. old son. It seems just like yesterday we were at the hospital having him...I also have a one yr. old little girl, but, with her, I am savoring those little moments. I get excited by every little personality quirk she is making for herself. I, also, seeing the beauty and horror of the mimicing words from her father and I. We really have to watch what we say, because she is at a stage where she is picking everything up! I can be in another room, raising my voice, so that my son can hear me, and I find her raising her voice, jibber-jabbering some partially coherent words, also, to her brother!

My son has been walking, now running, for a few months now, but his vocabulary is still pretty limited. His favorite words are dad-dad and cat (he adores our cat, Mumble). He says mama, nana, pop pop, Jo-jo (my sister Joanna), bath, duck, bye bye, ba ba, that, what, book, uh oh, and car. He also likes to sing nonsense; it's really cute. :)

That's all that I can think of right now, haha. He's a lot more physically active. He dances, he climbs, he runs around everywhere like a mad man! Hopefully his talking will start improving because his little voice is absolutely adorable!!

My daughter says lots of things, but the most surprising to me was that she said AMEN! I was watching a spiritual program on TV and she repeated what they were saying....I guess I need to watch what I say, there is no telling what she might say next...

My daughter says a few words. Mama, dada, baba, yeah, kitty, ball, hi, bye, Cait (her name), papa and papi (for my husband dad) and num num. She took her first steps at 10 months and was running around by 11 months.

We are having the same problem - I want Him to walk! He walks about 10-15 steps unassisted but then sits down to crawl the rest of the way he's nearly 13 months. He can talk like he's 3 perfectly clear 5 word sentances, reads, and puts colors together, is even fully potty trained but preferes to crawl to get around.

We tried to put things in each hand but he just drops to the ground and drags whatever we gave him :(

Does anyone have a suggestion on HOW to get them motivated to walk?

my boy's a screamer. it's like screaming is his new-found language. when i point to myself n say 'Mama', he will go 'mamamamamaaa'. And to my hub 'Daddy', he goes 'papapaaaa'. And that's the only vocab he's got. He's being taken care of by my mum n her helper, and there will always be someone at home to talk to him, teaching him words. But he's just not talking yet. however he started walking at 11mths, n is walking like a pro. he can even run a little when there's someone to hold his hand.

Tiras just learned to walk 2 days before his first birthday. Now, he runs around like crazy, but still falls down a good bit. He's also a little chatterbox. He says pray before we eat, and Amen at the end (is sounds like ama). He also says please if he wants something that I'm eating (sounds like peez). He says pup for dog, cooka for cookie, ba for ball, alga for all gone, and any time he sees steam, he says hot. His vocabulary grows every day. It seems like he's always learning new words.

Give her something to hold in each hand. She'll forget that she isn't holding on to something and probably start walking. That's how my daughter started to walk. My daughter doesn't say nearly as many words.

He also says night night (nigh nigh), kitty (kiki), hi, oh, dada, momma (mum mum), eye (as he pokes you in the eye and laughs) and a few other things...he also walks on his own finally...getting really good at it!

My son can say hello mummy, hello daddy, dog, Sadie (our dogs name), woof woof, Cat, Simba (our cats name), book, nana, Poo poo, Oh oo, Bottle, no & dont. He started talking very early around 2 and a half months. His first word was hello, on Father's day. At 10 months he started walking, without holding onto anything and since then his talking has stopped and all he says now is daddy, mummy bottle and dont.

Sounds like a lot of your children are doing extremely well. I thought my son didnt say much but I started to write down what he says and he can actually say quite a few words. around 20 words i have counted so far - not all of them are clear but when he does an action with them, we know what he wants. (for example he will point to the DVD player and say di di di until we put "Chuggington" on.) He says: mum, dad, nanna, andad (grandad), ody (cody - my mum's dog), did it, heyyo (hello), outide (outside - tells dogs off), num num (yum), ah (ta), yla (skyla-his cousin), lowler (power - our chosen football team (AFL)), teddy, no, nuh, mwah (blows kisses), dat (that), rarrgh (growls like a tiger), bubba and uh (up). these are what i have recalled so far. he has been walking since 10 months so keeps us on our toes. blake tends to point at objects a lot and i cant get him to sit so i can read him a picture book. any suggestions??

[deleted account]

Wow, my daughter don't say half those things and shes 13 months! She says mum, dada, nan, yeah (not often though, a couple times a week) num-num. Trying teach her Hi but shes been saying Eh lol. Walking, she will walk holding onto things (sometimes lets go but not for long) and will walk holding one hand or both. Recently though when I been taking her to bed I been sitting on the floor with me and putting her in front of me (standing up) average is four steps which I'm chuffed with But she starts laughing and then falling down, its so cute! She'll be there soon enough..

My son is talking and walking a lot! He's practically running. In the beginning, he was a little hesitant. I think your daughter is scared to walk on her own, but with more practice she'll soon learn that there's nothing to be scared of.

my daughter is saying: daddy, bird, puppy, that, all done, bath, cup, ball, yeah... oddly she isn't saying: mom or no... she has a few others that not to recognizable yet... but she is a talker! especially when she is "talking" on the phone... it's the cutest thing... (guess I talk on the phone to much) :)

[deleted account]

My daughter can say hi, uh-oh, doggie, kitty, bird, ball, mom, and daddy. She is starting to try to walk but its only one or two steps and only if she is withim reaching distance of something stable.

My daughter's like that too. She thinks crawling is easier. She's also a little talker. Puppy was one of her first words and she started saying that when we bought a puppy when she was 10 months. She also says kitty, pretty, no, hi, bye (her new favorite), daddy (says dadda-dee), mommy, ball and yum. She started calling her godmother Me-Me (her name's Melissa) and is trying to say Grammy and started saying Meggie for my sister (her names Megan). She also says up and baby. I'm a bit surprised that puppy and baby were her first real words. I've heard that those words are really hard for infants to say.

my son babbles all day long, words though he says
Mama, Mom, Dada, Baba, Dog, Cat (sounds more like Kk--ATTT), Duck, Bye, Moo when I ask him what the cow says
He`s been walking since the day he turned 11 months, he`s more focused on getting places then talking, he does fully understand what I say and will bring me what I ask for or follow a command, but he also wont listen and will shake his head No

He only sticks to a few. Your little one sounds perfectly normal. My eldest didn't say anything except Mum and Dad, until 16months - they are all different.. enjoy the peace LOL my 5 year old never stops now!!!!

My son would walk around furniture and short distances but wouldn't walk for the longest time. My parents just got back from a two week vacation to Europe and the night they got back he started walking for them. Silly little boy.

I say its cuz she was waiting for her daddy to come hom for leave from Iraq. My daughter is also a talker she says mom, dad, nana, me, baby, yea, no, dog, ball, bye, hi, ba ba, outside, whats that, i need that (sounds like I eeed that), i want that, keekat for kitty cat, she sings " ee i ee i oo" and if asked what a doggie says she says "woof woof". its soo cute.. I love to hear her talk and she sure does a lot of it all the time..
