Your 17months old (or about) and you say......
What??? (What words does your 17month old (or about that age) say?)
Aidan who was 17months on the 1st (34 weekers) says
thank you (or something like that, cant decide what hes saying but he says it when he should say thank you-dwim?)
baba (for bottle)
pac (pacifire)
nighnigh (night night)
ba (for ball)
ba (bat---he has the long A sound for the Bat and the short a for ball--atleast I think..Im not good at taht stuff)

I know there are a few more, but I cant think right now
he also says that eveyrhting is that if hes asking "whats that?" but he doesnt say whats, he just says that and points

Um - nothing!

Caelum says 'GAGA!!!' All day long. I know he's trying to say something, just doesn't have the words yet.

He does say 'papa' and 'wawa' for water (or any drink/liquid). A couple times he said 'caca' for cracker. And he might be getting 'buhbuh' for bubbles. ETA: oh yeah I forgot - he says 'uh mm' for 'uh oh'. He also signs 'more', and 'all done'.

That's pretty much it. Slow talker here!

He's only about 2 wks younger than your little one! (5/13/05)

The only thing that Bram has attempted to say is "thank you". (He has a brain malformation. We're really optimistic now though because we weren't expected him to ever talk. But now we know he can! (Even if it IS hard to understand. :giggle:) He signs about 15 signs and learns new ones every day though! :goodvibes:

(BTW, he's only 3 days younger than your DS! -- he was born 5/4/05)

My 16 mo old says:
No (thats a fun one)
Jack (it doesnt really sound like Jack, but close enough - thats our kitty)
She also meows if you ask her what a kitty says
She baaaaaaas if you ask her what a sheep says
And moos if you ask her what a cow days :giggle:

ETA: I forgot she says Uh-Oh, and "that" too

Re: Your 17months old (or about) and you say......
Ok well Brennan will be 16 months on the 20th

The words he can say are:
Ella (sister)
Mom or mama
Daddy or dada
Omie (my mom)
Gama (great grandma)
Bye bye
Bobs (blanket & paci)
Maybe more but i cannot think of them right now :headscratch:

He actually does more signing than talking so the signs he knows are:
Thank You
All done
He understands almost every sign we do which is a lot but he cannot do them all himself :thumbsup:

Cam-o is almost 20 months.

He doesn't say very much at all.

Mama (Occasionally, he HATES to say this, but will say Dada on command)

That's pretty much it. He's had a lot of health problems, and has been/is delayed on a lot of things. He'll be meeting with an early intervention program to see if he qualifies for his speech delay.

Re: Your 17months old (or about) and you say......
When ds was 15mo old he said about 50 words which I counted b/c of the ped. check up and all the ??'s ~ He is now 18mo and he must say 150 words or more ~ He talks so unbelievably well, that it has really "freked me out from about 14mo on. He has a sister, though, that is almost 3. I think he learns from her. She was Very slow to start talking and could but refused to say mama until she was almost 2. She talks A LOT now but I swear everytime she says something new he says it 2 :)

Re: Your 17months old (or about) and you say......
harper had a lot of words at 17 months. But, its been so long that I dont remember all of them...

She REALLY started picking up a TON of words around 18-19 months though.

Re: Your 17months old (or about) and you say......
My DD is 17mo and says mama, dada, cat, milk, and she just learned to say "uh oh!" Oh man, it's the cutest thing ever (missed out on it with my late talker DS. Not that he's not cute too.)

She is learning some signs too. All done, sit, more, open (to get me to open the Play-Doh so she can eat some. Yuck!) and she shakes her head no when I tell her no.
