If I told you my 15 month-old could say around 30 words, would you believe me?

Some of them are multisyllabic like "bubble", "flower", and "pumpkin."

  • I believe you. Mine were both talking in 4-5 word sentences by then and talking in paragraphs by 18 months. It was normal for my kids.

  • usually boys don't do this, i've heard an 18 month old girl sing the whole alphabet, i was impressed bc by then my son wasn't talking much at all. he's been using sentences since he was around two though, just kinda jumped over words to that.
