My daughter is turning one in a week from today! Anyway she's not walking yet (but crawling all over the place and pulling herself up on things). I'm not trying to rush her at all lol. I'm just wondering. She's a little chubby and I was wondering if that might play a small roll in it. She's also just babbling and saying dada a lot but she just learned hi! Lol I'm so excited for her.Answer Question
My grandson started walking at 9 mo and he is now 24 mo and only says a few words. He doesn't say mama, dada, or grandma but he says Taco Bell, the name of my Chihuahua. He really likes Taco Bell and they sit together on my lap in my recliner. He says hi, bye, yes, up, back, all gone and that's about it. Yesterday he said no. If you aren't saying no to a kid all the time it isn't one of their first words. He signs more, drink, and thank you.

I have 4 kids past that stage and they were all different. My oldest didn't start walking on her own until she was 14 months and was mostly just babbling at 1 (with a few words). My older son was running by 10 1/2 months and speaking in complete sentences at 12 months. He's always done everything early as he tried to keep up with his big sister. My middle daughter started walking just after her 1st birthday but didn't start talking until she was almost 3 (she only knew 2 words at 18 months and had maybe 12-15 words when she turned 2). My youngest dd started walking the week before her first birthday and was speaking in complete sentences when she turned 18 months. She's way ahead of other kids her age (she's 4 1/2) with a lot of stuff. She constantly surprises me with the things she knows and can do.
