8. Kitty
9. Milk - knows in sign language as well
10. Water (or wawa)
11. Up
12. Ni night
13. Go
14. Hi
15. Bye
16. Please
17. Ball
18. Car
19. Baby
20. Gaga (grandma)
21. Papa (grandpa)

  • The end of his knows but doesn't say got cut off. I'm not going to type it out again, but as I'm sure he understands a lot more than he can say. The list is seriously endless haha.

  • I've got twin boys that are almost 18m....and they say most of those, as well as know the face stuff. The more they know, the better! It makes it a lot easier to communicate, for sure! lol

  • At 18 months my son didn't say any words. At 19 1/2 month he went through an explosion of words. Now at 21 months he says more than 50 words and recognizes most of the alphabet and numbers 1-10.

    It's amazing how much they know once they start talking!

  • Mine was way ahead, so, you don't want to know about mine. Yours sounds like he knows a lot, does he put any together in sentences?

  • I have an old video tape of my daughter when she was 2. She is talking to me and at the time I was understanding her words and talking back to her. But now looking back at the video I can not make out a word she's saying. It's funny how we come to understand our childrens words when others may not hear it. My sister is a therapist and people will come to her and say their child can say 50 words and maybe she can get them to say 5 or 10.

  • My oldest said a lot of words at 18 months, but wasn't speaking in sentences until he was 2, then he hasn't stopped talking since. My youngest was speaking in full sentences and carrying on conversations at 18 months because he heard his older brother speaking and picked up on it I guess!! He also hasn't stopped talking since.

  • My 18 month old knows at least 50 words, and it seems like he's learning at least one new one/day. He can also say 3-4 words sentences.
