When did your kids learn eyes, ears, nose, mouth?

 I'm just wondering the "normal" age for that kind of thing. Owen is 17 months and knows eyes, ears, nose, mouth, hair, and belly. He can do it on himself and other people, like  I ask him where is daddy's eye and he will poke dad's eye... stuff like that.

 

And he understands when I ask him a question. Today he started going upsatirs and I asked him if he was going to his room to take a nap, he said yeah. Then I asked if he wanted me to bring his cup up for him, He said "yeah, cup". When I got up there he got in his bed, took his cup and asked me to turn on his Elmo movie (point to the tv and say "melmo?")

 

 

I'm wondering if he is ahead or behind or right on track with his talking and understanding what people say.

My son was doing all that at that age. He was doing those wood puzzles (melissa and doug) when he was only 15 months old.

I forgot a part. Sometimes he will walk up to me, shove his finger in my nose (eww) and say NOSE! and clap for himself (same with eye ear and mouth, he knows better than to yank on my hair so that's the only one he doesn't do)

Ethan was about 10 months when he started pointing to them on himself. He was a little over a year when he could on others. He started responding to questions around like 13-15 months. But I also always narrated what we were doing all the time from birth. He started talking in 2-4 word sentances around 18months or so.

It seems to me that Owen is on track. Ethan was a little early with a lot of things.

My Emme is just about to turn 19 months and learned all that this last month.. Well saying them, she could point to most of that at 15 months.

She has been following "commands" since about 14 months...

 I love this age:-)!!

 My son on the older hand didn't say much of anything until close to 2 years old and then just copied everything till he was just over 2.5.. He could do sign language. point to body parts and did say a few things on his own but never really cared to talk till he was close to 3!

Sounds normal to me.  My son could do those things around that age.  (Except he called Elmo, 'Mo. LOL)

He didn't talk a lot until around the time he turned 2 (last month).  Since then it seems like he learns a new word every day and has started using sentences.

Addisyn is 16 months (13 months adjusted) and is learning them. She can't say it, but she is nonverbal at this point.
