My 9.5 mth old repeated the word "kittycat" without missing a single sound! She started out going kakakakaka then "kittycat" came out 2x that I heard. I am claiming that as her 1st word because she knows it refers to kittycat and she repeated it, when I tell people they think I am nuts, but she said it! She also TRIED to repeat the word Christmas "cismis" Has anyone elses March baby started repeating words??

My daughter born 30 March 2010 says all the usual baby words that you expect along with 'cat' (second word), 'Katie' our neighbour, Pie, theyis (there it is), dat (that - something that she wants she'll point at). She can also point out various household things like butterflies, books, cars, teddy, etc. She has lots of words and can point out people in a room if you ask 'where is Granddad?' she knows her Aunts and Uncles too and will point to the correct person when asked. Babies are amazing sponges, they learn so quick. She cut her first tooth on Tuesday and isn't crawling yet but I think she's just developing mentally first. She's so clever and will point out her nose, ears and hair and has a raft of funny games to play on command. I love spending my days with my little entertainer!

My daughter has not started saying real words yet, but she will try to repeat the tone, pitch and syllables of anything we say. I'm sure real words can't be far off!

Yes. Mine said mama and mom-mom around 3.5 months, but stopped after a couple of months. He started saying dada and dad-dad at 7 months then at 7.5 months...his first word...which he loves (now he's 9.5 months)...CAT. He tries repeating things too, but if he gets the word he doesn't say it again later. He said Santa once...lol. He now says hat a lot, but doesn't know what it means. He mainly says dada, dad, or cat.

YES my little one has been repeating sounds for a while now and has been saying cat and kitty also (in Spanish) for a couple of weeks. She also repeats sounds she hears us say we've been astounded by what she says sometimes - although she has been saying DADA and PAPA for a few months now the other day my 4yr old called Daddy and the baby repeated it as well as Nina and some other words - it's amazing to see them learn and grow this way I love it!!

My daughter will be 10 months old on the 9th of January. She has been saying dada. She also says mum mum mum mum. I was able to get her to say sissy (for her older sister) twice in a row but she won't say it now. She has also said poop.

oh yea! Ariya said (very loudly and clear as a bell) at a family function in November "Hi Dadda" and has been a chatter-box ever since! She mimics the inflections as well in some words. She is expressing herself being "all done" and "up" clearly as well as saing "Hi, Dadda, Momma," - this is so much fun!!

ohhh YEAH! My daughter says so many words! She says," Mama (all the time), Dada, Baba, Kitty, Doggy, All done, Thank You, Uh oh, no, bye, hi, etc.. She also has recently been touching my nose and trying to say nose, and same with my eyes. She loves the song head, shoulders, knees and toes.. so I think she is picking it up from that!! So smart, aren't they!!

My daughter was born March 19 and the only word she says is Mom. She started saying it about a month ago and says it all the time but hasn't even tried to say any other words.

My youngest twin can repeat some words and she'll say uh-oh when she drops something, but that's about it. Both girls are too busy discovering where they can crawl to next to attempt any other words. It's brilliant to hear them say anything and we're looking forward to when they're talking a bit more.

Yes! Christmas week our daughter produced "daw" when she saw my mom's dog and then said it many more times. Daw was swiftly followed by cat, doll and dada...as well as every child's favorite: no! Makes us wonder what other words she's been listening to! I guess we need to be on our toes now, right? Amazing how quickly that happens.

My baby is 9 months.She says mama,dada,hi and said sock one day but has yet to repeat it. She definately tries to mimic what I say to her. I said say than you one day and she got really close. We talk about my dog Stewie to her a lot. She tries to say his name but so far can only get the st of stewie. Its funny though cause she keeps repeating that sound over as if she's trying to force the rest out.
They will be talking a lot in a few short months. Crazy how fast they grow:)

my baby was born march 5th & he repeats words all the time!! it may not always be exactly what i say, but its close enough for people to understand. his 1st word was ball, usually its dada...i think that kids these days are very smart & learn things at a faster rate than we did growing up :o)

My daughter will be 9 months tomorrow. She says mama, dada, bubba, and, I swear has said "Poop" twice. The funny thing is, she was actually poopy! My sons were witnesses to the first time, but I was alone with her the second time. People kinda think I am crazy too. I'm not, of course, going to try to potty train her, yet. I just think she recognizes what is in her diaper because I say it every time I change her. Plus, Big Bubba (age 2) is potty training, so she hears it a lot. She has also said "whoa!" when she looked up at the fan and it was going really fast. It is so cute to hear a little one's first words!

My little lady sings and its so darn funny. Her favorite song is Rihanna's newest song. Shyla goes" oh nananananananananan" and dances. She says mama, dada, doodoo,baba,yes, pampa, no, hot, and tada as in surprise tada! We talk to her nonstop so she realy thinks she's having a full on conversation with you. She is 9 months old and has been walking since 8 months. Not to mention she has 6 teeth. I think I have a mutant baby....but I love her!

I don't doubt it at all :) My son born March 24 can say Dada, Dad, Mama, Mom, Nay Nay- which is what we call his Grandma, Ball, Right There, There, Door, Done, Down, calls our cat by her name "Roo Roo'', he has said a few other words on occasion and has repeated a few. If asked where something is he will point to it. Their brains are little sponges!

My daughter will be 9 months tomorrow, but so far no words. She is crawling all over, standing and making all sorts of sounds, but no words yet. If I repeat mama over and over, she watches my mouth and moves her lips like she is going to say it, but then just babbles. :)
