  • um no i'd say your baby's fine. Stop worrying about what other 1 year olds are doing and saying. If anything was wrong, your doctor would have informed you.

  • I like how your son says Dog (gog) My daughter says dag for dog. She chases any dog around going "Dag dag dag).

  • I'd say that's pretty well for his age. He'll learn more as you continue to communicate with him and say the names for everything he sees. He's doing good.
