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. ) He signs about 15 signs and learns new ones every day though!

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

Re: Your 17months old (or about) and you say......

Well my ds said next to nothing at that age (mama, dada, & gak - which meant "what's that"). Claire, on the other hand (16 mos) says:
Mama
Dada
Hi
uh-oh
bye-bye
night-night
more (specifically regarding food)
ball
baby
book
bump
nana (banana)
out (as in get me out of my carseat!)
ear
mow (mouth)
Ga-Ga (Gavin)
Yea

We were amazed (after a slow talker first, who now won't shut up, LOL!) when she started saying things around 14 mos!

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
Nana
Omie (my mom)
Papa
Gama (great grandma)
Ball
Hello
Bye bye
Bobs (blanket & paci)
Maybe more but i cannot think of them right now

He actually does more signing than talking so the signs he knows are:
Water
Eat
Milk
Sling
No
Thank You
Bird
Cat
Dog
Where?
All done
Hot
He understands almost every sign we do which is a lot but he cannot do them all himself

Cam-o is almost 20 months.

He doesn't say very much at all.

Dada
Mama (Occasionally, he HATES to say this, but will say Dada on command)
Cheeeeeese
Uh-oh

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
