  • How much? My son said his first word at 3 months old. He said "hi". By the time that he was 6 months old he was using two words at a time. My daughter didn't say her first word until she was 6 months old. She said "mumma". By age 1 she was a chatter box.

  • mine didn't "talk" until after two, he had a couple of words but then started saying sentences and i was dumbfounded. wow, it's so cool when they talk. now he does almost a paragraph and understands me, he gets frustrated though when i don't understand him. he's almost four now.

  • First word at 4 months. By 6 months a couple together and answering me. By a year we were having back and forth conversations. She's 5 now and talks just like an adult using correct words and lots of them. :-) Her kindergarten teacher was surprised at how much she has to say and how well she says it. I'm a very proud mommy :-)

  • The first did not talk until 26 months, when her brother was born. Then in full sentences and paragraphs.
    The second started talking at one.
