When did your child tell you their name?

Ok, I do admit it, Samantha is a big name. Yes, that's what we call her, no Nick names. She is really smart and very verbal. She can count to 10 and knows about 75 percent of the alphabet. I think that is pretty good for a 21 month old.

So why when I ask her to say Samantha does she say, "Misa"? I don't get it.

My daughter, now 2 was saying "Ya" instead of Lydia right around 22 mos or so. Then she started saying "YaYa" and we kept working on it, the one day it clicked with her and she started saying LID-EE- AH! and i said yes, very good Lydia.
My point is, she will get it someday too.

My daughter knows the alphabet, shapes, colors, numbers and how to count to 20. we frequently work on it with her.

Our triplet could say their nicknames before their full first names but they are kind of long.

ds could say his nickname as soon as he could talk. by 2&1/2 he knew his full name. His first name is Nathaniel. He can tell you his first middle and last name. He is now 3 and he knows all of his alphabet by sight and sound. He can count to 15, 10 in spanish and knows most of his basic colors in spanish as well.
