  • My first could do it around 11 months with nose, ears, eyes, and we even have a video of her at 15 months pointing to her knuckles and saying "knuckles." But then our second daughter was pointing to her body parts by around 14 months and saying them around 16 months.

  • my dd's been recognizing hers since about 1 yr...she listens and loves, head shoulders knees and and she'll point to it's the cutest thing,--my dd gets an itch or something on her eye from time to time, and when she rubs it she says "eye"'s absolutely adorable lol..

  • Noah knows what his bellybutton is, and his penis because he's forever playing with it in the bathtub so I taught him what it was. He's 15 months, 13 months corrected.

  • Dd had them down at a year. She knew her belly button, butt, and toes long before eyes, nose and cheeks. She couldn't say them but knew where they were.

  • Son first told me "EYE" and poked mine when he was around 9 or 10 months. As for the other parts he had them all by a year probably.

  • Is it bad that my son is 23 months and still doesnt know these things? We've been trying to teach him but he just doesn't get it. He just started saying night night, bye bye, decca (our dog becca), no dog (our puppy ando, lol), hi, please, and thank you.
