Brodyn says about 60 or so words. He repeats most anything I ask him to. he is quite the talker. What type of art have you tried with your child? he seems more interested in eating the crayons and playdo than creating anything with them.

Kraina said her first word, Abba (the hebrew word for daddy) at 4 months!!!! Mommy came a few weeks later and now Kraina says about 50 words that are recognizable and a whole bunch that unless its in context, I have no idea what she is trying to say. She will repeat any word I ask her to, and understands everything I tell her. We are having a problem with animal sounds though. The first sound I taught her was "mooo". Now when she hears the word "sound" she says "mooooo". What sound does the car make? moooo. What sound does the dog make? moooo.

Eric seems to be able to say and understand a lot of words, but he doesn't really use them much. He follows directions very well so I know he understands me but when it comes to talking he really sticks to the functional words. If it doesn't get him anything he rarely uses it, but I hear no, up, again, book and other words he uses to tell me what he wants (or doesn't want) all the time.

I actually just counted today...my daughter can say about 30, she says about 10 of those while signing, and in the past couple of days has started saying a couple short phrases. she was slow to start talking but all of a sudden is adding new words really quickly!

Our daughter is quite a talker. she'll say (or try to say) anything that is under 3 syllables. we've counted @ least 100 words. we really have to watch our P's & Q's!! It's nice that she's able to tell you what she wants now.

Liliana talks non stop. She started at about 13 months when I went in to get her after she had awakened from a nap, she pointed to my eye and said 'eye' as clear as could be. That was the beginning of her chatter. She now strings 3 words together and tends to repeat everything we say. When she wakes up, or if she wakes in the middle of the night, she shouts out new words she has learned from the day/week which is quite humorous. Prior to talking she was really into sign language so she is a little communicator! All children learn and develop differently. Liliana has been more into reading, colouring, talking, painting than climbing and other physical activities. She is now really getting into the physical side of things, so it is really at her own pace.

Jonah was not very verbal at all for a while other than Mommy and Daddy and Bubby (for his brother). I was actually getting worried because I kept reading how he should mimic things we say, and he was not; just babbling. This past month though he has started saying lots more. He probably says 20 or so words, and we had his 18 month well check and his pediatrician said that is absolutely fine.

Bella's got somewhere around 100 words. A good portion of them wouldn't be recognizable to people that aren't around her on a regular basis though. ;-) But I still count them because she knows what they mean and attempts to say them. She also knows about 20 animal sounds.
She's always been very eager with the intellectual milestones, but more cautious with the physical ones.

Our daughter will be 18 months on the 21st and is talking a lot. She has two older siblings though so she learns a lot from them. She said her first word around her 1st birthday and is now talking in two and sometimes three word sentences. All kids develop differently though, my other two definitely didn't talk as much as she does at her age. Off the top of my head her vocabulary has 37 words that are noticeable to most people and a few more that only family understand still.

I feel like Michael talks constantly... like another poster, it's getting him to be quiet that's the issue. No older siblings but he is in daycare 3-4 days a week. He says 'Hi' to everyone we see, and gets louder and louder until they respond... not always fun. The first thing he says every morning is "Outside Outside!!" and that's what we hear until it's time for bed. The most adorable thing he says is when I asked to 'see his face' he puts both hands on his face and says "Too Cute!!!" And of course his mother melts! Ok enough babbling, no wonder my son talks so much :)

My daugther only says about 10 words that you can acutally understand. She does sign a lot but we never sign without saying the word too. She's got no older siblings....just us and her older cousins who we see every once in a while. She understands a lot though...some kids just take longer. My mom said that I didn't say anything until I was like 2! But my daughter will babble all day to herself LOL!

Maria is my talker! she can say anything she wants to and some times will even give a sentence. Her favorite is who is that or what is that. She has 3 older siblings and has learned to talk a lot. I have people ask all the time if she is over two, because she talks so much.

Yeah, you know you can't compare the kiddos! lol. We were a bit concerned ourselves when Maddy took so long to speak. Her older sister was talking in sentences at 18 months (she hasn't stopped talking since!). They're all different.

He does use sign...he knows about 10 signs and learns more everyday. I didn't want to sound super concerned, but I heard another toddler the other day say TONS of words, and I was started to wonder....

my daughter does not say any thing at all yet, but understands and responds to every request that you give her but i know in time she will not stop talking, but most of it os down to my son as he always talks for her and does things for her x

My daughter does not say much yet, she still babbles all day long and says about 5 words clearly. But she is learning 2 languages, we spoke to the Dr. and he said to not worry cause she still talks a lots and the second language can take longer for her to be understood by us!... Anyone elses in the same situation?

I have twins that are 17 months old. Parker is the one who says most of the words - I think I counted almost 25 off-hand the other day (including things like No and Moo). Abby only says a few things and not as clear as her brother. I think I hear apple, thank you, milk, and baby in her attempts. The funny thing is she babbles non-stop in her own "language" complete with gesturing, etc.
Stacy - posted on 10/21/2008
I'd count moo as a word for sure! That's still a concept, thing, object, etc. that he's shown he knows. Does he do any sign language? Maddy used her signs (about 5 or so) for several months before speaking. She still uses them pretty frequently.
Stefanie - posted on 10/21/2008
OK, thanks! That's good to know. Cole knows about 20, but understands waaay more. Do you count sounds as words? Ex: if he saw a cow and says "moo"? It shows he knows it, but doesn't say the word yet.

Landen talks a lot -- he probably says 20-25 words that are recognizable to any human ear...and probably another 10-15 words that only those closest to him understand! :) He's getting better, but since he has an older sister...he had to learn to speak up a lot sooner!!! :)
