    DS is 15 months old next week. He says, mum, dad, grandma, grandad, birdy, bath, thank you, bottle, water, and yeah, the rest is pretty much gibberish, but oh so cute! lol

    He is starting to understand things a bit now which is good. He understands 'no!' and hates it when we tell him no and he chucks a major head-banging tanti!

    ETA - Forgot he also says 'bye bye' and waves at people and says 'hello' when he pretends to answer the phone.

    Anyways Xav is 18 months and says a few words mum, dad, boka (boxer the dog) baby, yes

    But that is about all he says he used to say Whats that, this, but its like he out grew those words and started other gibberish... He understands what im saying as well, Lay down, change your bottom, more, Going to bed, wheres daddy, Ta, and he even yells gibberish at Boxer when she is barkingits so cute

    But my niece is 3 and has only just started talking sentences so its different with every baby..

    LOL Lisa,yeah 25
    I think Rileys pretty damn clever,and compared to his friends who are all the same age-they are sooooo similar,and all do the same things like say uh uh uh uh when they want something hehe.
    I just was curious to see what other kids were saying too

    Liams just turned 12 months.

    He can say mum, dad, doi, shhhh but he says them randomly. he only says mum/mummy when he is sad though, and mainly talks gibberish.

    I know I shouldn't compare but I know a few 12 monthers who had a bigger vocabulary. I don't know if I'm doing anything wrong though.

    All kids develop differently.
    What I have ALWAYS done is talk to Riley,and name and explain things.Like instead of saying"bring me that" I will say "Bring me your book" and stuff like that.I always use a running commentary with whatever we do
    I may sound stupid to random people but I think its a great way to help them develop their vocab.
    Altho he doesnt say many words,I know he can understand what Im saying.
    If he would just learn what NO! meant we would be sweet

    At 18 months now, Chanel is REALLY started to say things. To a stranger, a lot of them probably don't sound like much... but to those of us who are close to her, they make perfect sense!

    I'll try to see what she can say...hmmmm...

    *Mum
    *Dad
    *Nan
    *Nuh! (even though we've been trying to teach her it's 'no' instead of 'nuh!')
    *Dog
    *Cat
    *Fish
    *Bird
    *Sheep
    *Toes
    *Shoes
    *More
    *Ta
    *Please (at least, I think that's what it is?)
    *Bath
    *Nose
    *Eyes
    *Hair
    *Ears
    *Mouth
    *Teeth
    *Barb (which means 'Barbie'...lol)
    *Baby
    *Chips (thanks to her Aunty and Cousins who fed her heaps of those over Christmas!)

    She also makes animal sounds and such, and thinks that's what those animals are called. Like, you know the frog song (galoomp went hte little green frog one day?...etc), well she thinks a frog is called 'galoomp' and that a snake is called a 'sssssss' and that a duck is called a 'quack quack.'

    She's only started pulling a lot of these out recently though... previously, she was pretty much just talking jibberish...
