Vocabulary at three?

I was wondering what is normal for this age. My 34 month old says things like (at the sink brushing her teeth) "mommy, please move my stool a little bit further to the middle." She grasps concepts and utilizes words appropriately, not just copying phrases. I didn't think anything of it (she's my first) but recently people have commented on it.

Hmm not sure.  If you have questions, usually the dept of education does free screenings for children up to a certain age. Don't worry too much about what other children do compared to yours since each one is unique in their own way.  I am presuming the adults speak in this manner though since children learn their communication by listening to others.

Sounds normal to me, but I am comparing to my kid only.

My dd is this way, not my DS or dd2. It's advanced for the age, but I've been reading that just cause their advanced at one age doesn't mean they won't slow down and be equal to peers later. But you may have a smarty on your hands

That's pretty normal! My 2.5 year old speaks in full sentences, and has great manners. She has a very broad vocabulary.

I don't know if this is the case across the board but my daughters seemed to have a broader vocabulary at a much younger age than my boys. 

My now 2 and half yr old speaks amazingly but my seven yr old son is getting special help in school for speech. My oldest is a girl and she was also a great speaker. The other two boys are twins and had or have speech delays, which is common in twins. They got help for three yrs and then phased out of early intervention. 

So, she sounds to me like my daughters.

My dd at 18 months talked in full sentences. Not those grown up words but full sentences. She talked before one. Her sister that didn't talk till 2 actually did much better in school.
