I agree that you are the only one that knows your child best. I think that milestones are helpful for some parents. You just have to keep in mind that this is what on "average" kids are doing; milestones have such large gaps on either end. With a child development background, it is cognitively impossible for a 2/3mo. old to say a word and associate it with an object/person.

I always tell my parents to talk, talk, talk (meaningful ways)!!! Mimic your child's sounds/babbles, make silly sounds, repeat words....and have fun with language and your child!!

hehe thats so cute!! Babies wil say all sorts of simple words/sounds as they copy us. Once you can see her associating that word with an object, person etc then she is talking. My daughters first words were Mama, Dada at 8 months and was associating those words with us and we were absolutely delighted!! Her latest is "Ta" when we give her something like a toy or food... don't be restricted by any milestone manual you may come across (though I myself have a nosey) your baby is unique and you are the one who knows your baby best =D Enjoy

My little girl was 4 months and she said "hi" I went to go get her after her nap and she looked up at me and said "hi"

That's real early, I agree with Angela that maybe it sounded like a word but was just bablbling. The key is to listen for consistant sounds she makes that she associates with an object/person. My little one used to say "ooh" for bridge, but not any other time or "da" for dog. There are milestones on the internet that you can look up.

That is really early, My god! But maybe she was making noises and it sounded like she said what and didn't really mean too. How old is she now? Is she talking?
