I know kids learn at their own pace, but DS is 14 months and still not really talking. He says mumma, dada, and uh oh. He's really smart and understands things I say/ask him, but he just doesn't say much. When I ask if he wants a bath, he runs to the bathroom, if he has something he's not supposed to have I'll ask him for it and he gives it to me, if I ask him if he wants to play outside he waits by the door etc. I see kids younger than him already saying a bunch of words and I know I shouldn't compare, but it's just got me thinking if he's a little behind. He has an appointment next month so I guess I'll see what his pedi says. When did your LO start saying more words?

He's normal. :) My DD is 14 months and she just says: Mom, dad, her brother's names, he aunt's name, uh oh, all gone, love you, hi, bye and then she surprised us with "What happened, Ashton?" She mostly babbles though. She understand what we're talking about. My middle child(a boy) didn't hardly say anything until he was 2....just the norms like mom, dad, baba, hi and bye. Once he turned two he started talking like a mad man. I wouldn't say that your boy is far behind at all. It all depends on personality. My oldest was talking at 8 months and saying full sentences by 1 year, and now he talks like he's 37 years old. All in the personality.

DS is the same. He's 17 months. He's just started to say Nana(Banana) when we hold one up. He nods or shakes his head for yes and no and will say momma and Dada but that's it. He responds to everything and shakes hands if you tell him to say hello lol. But yeah I don't have much advice. I just keep getting told its normal and some kids just talk later.

Another thing is that he probably knows a lot of words, he's just not talkative so doesn't feel the need to say them.

Cecily doesn't hardly talk either. We just tell people that she has nothing to say, right now! ;)



She's 16 1/2 months, and can say hi, hey, bye, uh-oh, bath, bed, night-night, love me (its suppose to be love you, lol,) Mia (Minnie Mouse,) hot, dog, doggy, puppy, baby, mommy, daddy, papa, mama (grandma.) She also tries to sing the Hot Diggity Dog song, but it comes out "hot dog dog dog dog dog..." It's quite adorable..

Ah, well I guess he will be a late talker. I just wasn't sure if this was normal or not. Like I said he understands what I'm saying most of the time, and he knows what certain objects are. He just babbles and spits everywhere haha
