DOES YOUR 5 MTH. OLD SOUND LIKE SHE/HE IS TRYING TO TALK?

I SWEAR MY DD IS TRYING TO COMMUNICATE W/ ME! I KNOW IT SOUNDS STUPID-BUT SHE'S TRYING TO FORM WORDS. ANYONE ELSE?

  • I have a funny home movie of my daughter turning to look at her daddy (and the camera) and saying, clear as day, "Hi Daddy!". She was just about 5 months old too. She didn't say it again until nearly 2.

  • It doesn't sound stupid at all. Sounds like she is starting to play with her voice and possibly form words. I loved that time with my kids, it is soooo cute! :)

  • My two-month-old tries to talk to me. :) I think they want to communicate right away, it just takes awhile to figure out the words and what they mean. I understand this perfectly, as I can't put words together anymore, either! Stupid Mommy brain!
