Should my 16 month old daughter be talking more?

My Dad said to me today that he thought my daughter, who is 16 months old, is not very forward with her talking. I think she is doing ok, but he has made me think about it.

She says words like Mommy, Daddy, more, w'is it? (who is it?) t'is it? (what is it?), door, rabba (rabbit), bir (bird), ta, no, yeah, poo bu (poo bum when she fills her nappy). Maybe a few more, I can't think of them all right now.

I think this is good for her age, but then when someone plants an idea in your head you start to question yourself. Can anyone else tell me whether they think she is doing ok?

Set your mind at ease. I think she is doing really, really well! My son, who is also 16 months does not have that range of vocab as yet.
