it depends. My daughter was talking up a storm in complete sentences by the time she was a year (she's 5 now and has yet to stop talking). My son on the other hand is barely intelligible except for momma, toot toot, car, grr (short for Tigger) and bye and he's almost 2. Statistically girls talk sooner and better than boys (or so I was informed by my pediatrician). It also depends on how much you speak to them and making silly sounds that emphasize particular letters helps too according to my son's speech therapist. They also said to have no other noise around whenever possible. The kids can't differentiate between what you're saying and what the radio is saying for instance. I hope this helps. If you are concerned, bring it up at the next well child visit. Many states offer free developmental evaluations and can even offer free or reduced cost therapy if needed.
