    Thank you everyone. I'm not too worried, just thought he might be lagging behind a bit. I try to read to him every day and keep TV to a minimum. I'm sure it'll be like walking - you want them to do it so bad, then when they do you wish they'd stop!

    Loving6 - I first read your post as one of your DS's words was 'bugger me' and had a bit of a chuckle - if DS could talk I reakon that's probably what he would be saying!

    My dd only had a few words at 14m. Her words really came in at about 17-18months and now you can't shut her up.

    As everyone has said, the fact that he listens, understands and follows instructions is great. The words will come!

    yep, dont have to worry too much. my girl is 16 months old and speaks in her "own language" lol. we often do not understand what she says but just acknowledge. I've read that by 2 years old, they would be able to say about 20 words. if you're worried, perhaps you could try flashcards method. im using flashcards on my girl and it works pretty well.
