My crazy guy has quite a list of words! Mom, ball, block, book, bye bye, papa, bang, boob (!), hi and hello. He is a great mimic. As for motion, he is *almost* walking. He stands without holding on, and can take steps with a push toy.

hey my daughter is a chatter box! she says mum, dad, da da (for grandad), nanan, kyle (her uncle), horsh (horse),shoooo, hi, hey, hot ,hat, cold, bird ,dog, cat, tissue, bye, ta (all the time! so proud!!!) and a fair few more!!! she copys everything i say... wich isnt a great thing as the other day i said shit & she turned around and said "shit! shit!" oopsss... lol. But you know what its a trade off cos she dosnt crawl, dosnt pull up, dont walk!!! its almost like she is using all her brain power for 1 thing and forgetting the other! so dont worry they say most babys will only say 1 word by there first birthday!!! :o)

My son, Jace, can say mama, dada, nana, papa, get it, oh(for when he falls on his butt or when hes doin somethin he knows he shouldnt), baba(for bottle), and buh bye. He is very active also. He crawls everywhere, stands alone, walks around furniture and when someone holds his hands n with a push-walker, and will sometimes take a few steps alone.

My son loves the sound of his voice. The only reason I know he is forming words is because he picked up my cell phone and put it to his ear and said "he-oh?" He has been saying that for a while, but I didn't catch it. He has been saying mama and dada and "ca" for cat for a while though. But other than cat, we haven't been sure he knows what he is saying. Either way, all kids focus on something, for your son it may not be talking. I wouldn't worry until the ped says you should.

My daughter does not talk yet. It sounds like she says MA when she is upset, but that's about it. She is extremely physical though. She crawls, stands independently, walks around furniture, and climbs everything in sight. I think that babies who are more physically active are less prone to speech and vice versa. I am not too concerned because she appears to hear just fine and understands when I say certain things to her such as to come here. All babies develop very differently. MY son talked early- probably started around 8 months, but he was not physically active.

My little guy says Mama, Dada, NiNi (for night night) and today it sounded like he said ball. I have heard that boys take longer to talk but are fast when it comes to crawling, walking and physical activities. With my little guy we read to him a lot, infact he is always playing and looking at books and he is making sounds when he is looking at them, almost like he is trying to read them. Don't get worried though all babies are different....

My little boy finally said Mama last week and said Dada like a week before. I was really getting worried too because he didn't do much babbling either, but since he spoke and saw us get so excited he babbles constantly now. It's hard not to compare yours to others but try not to. Keep talking to him...he will talk soon.

Hey Erin - my son says dadada and rarara and that's about it with a large array of other noises. I've been talking to him like he's an adult since he was in my belly and everyone says that's the best thing for him. Babies try to mimic what we say so just keep talking! =)

I've heard that boys take a little longer to talk than girls. My daughter's been saying words for awhile. Now she can say, Mummy, Daddy, Kitty, Baby, Uh oh, and she's been trying to say "Patty-cake, and Peek-a-boo" but those are a little tougher for her. Is he walking yet? My daughter is still barley even crawling, she more like inch worms along pretty much dragging herself around. haha
