Re: Do you have a late talker or did you?

My DS was a slow talker. By 12 months you were lucky to get more than a grunt, by two he had mama, dada, and bye. I put him in EI & he exploded 2 months before his 3rd birthday

DD has been talking since she was 6-7 month old. She started with mama, dada, and bye. By 18 months she had 3-4 word sentences. Now at two she can carry on a coversation if she wants too.

Re: Do you have a late talker or did you?

My ODD had her first word at 10 months - it was "uh oh" - but didn't say much of anything else till she was 15 months old! I was starting to get worried, but then it really exploded around 18 months and now at almost 3, she sounds like 4 and 5 year olds that I know. There is such a huge range of what's normal for speech at that age, so I'd try not to worry too much.

Re: Do you have a late talker or did you?

My 25mo had 3 words when he was a year old and when he was 23mo he still had the same 3 words along with a one syllable yell. It wasn't the lack of actual talking that worried me it was the lack of any communication. He didn't point at things he wanted, he didn't initiate signing, but would copy a sign, he didn't make noise when he played with his cars, wouldn't make animal noises, and didn't babble. When we had him evaluated he tested at a 10-12mo level in all communication. At 23.5mo he started communicating in every way he hadn't before. Now he is a nonstop babbler and will ask for things using signs as well as sounds!

Re: Do you have a late talker or did you?

My oldest only said about 5 words from 12 months to almost 2 years then by 2 he used maybe 10 words...but by three he was a non stop talker. My 5 yo was the same way except he picked up words much slower so at 12 months he used two words and lots of pointing, at 15 months he had 3 or 4 words by 2 he was using maybe 7 words and then by 3 he was rattling on constantly.

This is my daughter. She's almost 12 mos old and does not say mama or dada. She didn't crawl until 9 mos, and is cruising now at 11 mos, but says uh-uh (instead of uh oh) all the time. My boys were just so much faster. But I think she'll be a late talker. We'll see how it goes. I'm giving her more time.

Both of mine didn't crawl until 9 months

Re: Do you have a late talker or did you?

DD has about 20 words all together, and probably about 10 gestures/signs. She'll be 2 next week. It is a little worrying when I hear the chatterbox at the next table and find out she's only a few weeks older than my DD, or worse, younger, but my doctor's unconcerned.
