  • My daughter started around 18 months. My son started closer to 24-30 months. I guess he didn't have much to say. Now, neither one of them shuts up, ever.

  • Right when he hit 15 months mine started picking up words like crazy, sometimes several in a day. As far as sentences, he can say "want down" and maybe one other phrase. Otherwise it's still single words and pointing now a month later.

  • When she was about 15 months she was potty-trained (getting it down)
    and after that she would not shut up! so around 16/17 months it was run run run

  • My daughter is 23 months and has really been talking a lot the last month or so putting together 5 word sentances or so and her vocabulary seems to be getting larger everyday. My son was slower, I'm not sure when he really started saying longer sentances. At 2 I wrote out a list of all of his words, I think it was 70- something words. I couldn't possibly write a list for my daughter at this point.
