Re: How many words does YOUR 13 month old say?

My son is 18 months now, but at 13 months, the only thing he was saying was "dada". Since then, he's picked up a few more words, but still only has about 5 that he uses. I'd suggest not getting too worried about counting words though. I just had my son evaluated for our state's Early Intervention program last week because I was concerned it. He didn't qualify - not by a long shot - because even though his vocabulary is small, he understands words and uses gestures to communicate.

Re: How many words does YOUR 13 month old say?

13-month-old DS says "mama", and what appears to be "this" but which sounds more like "zissss". He uses it to get me to identify things - "zissss"... "is a spoon" - and to tell me he wants what he is pointing at. "you want this? your cup?" He also appears to be saying "car" for his red fuzzy Rubbabu car, though I am not totally sure this is distinct from his "ga".

"Ga" is his "we are having a casual conversation about nothing particularly important" word. I'm not even sure this counts as a word, except that he says it with such authority. It appears to function in conversation the same way that "yeah", "huh?", "ok" or "hey" would.

"Are you having fun?" "Ga."
"Gah." waits for response... "GAH!" "Mommy is finishing an email right now, but if you go get a book I will read it to you." "Ga."

So, two-maybe-three words that mean something in English, and one interjection whose meaning is clear only to himself.

That is REALLY cute!

Just a thought. Do any of your babies use a binki? Cove does, and my mom says he's not saying words because he has a biinki in his mouth all the time Oooooops! But honestly, I try to only give it to him if he's going to sleep or in the car. Usually. Or if he is sad. lol.

Not very much!

Dada (all the time)
Baba (for ball, brother, balloon)
Ga (for everything else she points to) LOL.
Caca (cracker, for anything food related, when she wants to eat, etc.)

She points at everything and her receptive language is great. She understands a lot more than she can say.

I'm not worried. My ds spoke only a handful of words clearly at 18 months. By age 2, he was speaking complete sentences.

Re: How many words does YOUR 13 month old say?

My DD is 14 months and change. She doesnt say anything anyone other than mommy and daddy can understand. She knows lots of animal sounds though.

She says:
Mama
Daddy
Uh-oh
Whoops
Ba for ball
Ooooey-dooey (for okey dokey)
Bubble

and a few others. The other night she said hockey while we were watching the game. She communicates really well and follows simple instructions (she can find a toy if asked). I'm not worried that she doesnt have many real words. She'll get there.

DS will be 12 months tomorrow. he babbles non-stop, but i don't think he actually knows what anything MEANS, so i don't count it as being a "word" yet. he does say "book" all the time, but again, i don't think he has put two and two together yet. all things come in time

DS is 12 months and has 4 words
mama (only when really upset)
dada (all the time)
da (done - though he hasn't said it in a while)
bye (just said this last night)

He doesn't have a binky, but usually has something in his mouth!!!

Re: How many words does YOUR 13 month old say?

Isabel was only saying 2 or 3 words then. She didn't talk much about all until she turned 2. Now she knows a lot. Just a late talker!
