Normal (well, common) 20 month old talking

How does the average 20 month old talk? Mine says 2-4 word phrases. Like No Bubu, Mine! Or please my cup. and things like Dog! Sit! She is fairly easy to understand for strangers though not perfect. The ped seems surprised she was saying 'All done; a few months ago but I didn't think much of it. Then she started putting even more words together...

  • owning a moms group for LOs under 2, I can tell you that's fairly advanced but happens often enough. But that's really great and exciting! DD is 16 months and her biggest sentence is "Hi momma!" so it looks like you have me beat :)

  • Yep, my dd was an encyclopeida at that at 27 months, she speaks in 8-9 word sentances as clear as a bell. I never thought anything of it until my SIL said she was amazed by her vocabulary.
