Hello ladies! I am a mother of 3, I have a 13 yr old step daughter a 20 month old daughter and a 8 month old daughter.
Just looking for some thoughts from other momma's. What is/was your 20 month olds vocabulary like?
Hi! My daughter had a pretty big vocab. She is now starting to put 2-3 words together like "I do it" "No like it" "My turn"
She can name most objects and body parts and is starting to be able to ask for what she wants (cookie, milk, tired, etc)
My son is 18 months and has 4 words: momma, dada, tractor, and kitty.
I wish he was using more words, but I'm not worried. :)
TheBuddha:Z is 23 months and has a very small vocabulary. He can point to many things when I ask...but he doesn't say the words.
We have mama, dada, grandma, ball, light, i love you and outside. I worry sometimes but everyone tells me just to be patient.
His motor skills are super advanced though. He can walk down a flight of stairs without holding on to anything.
I start to worry all over again when I hear of kids way younger saying TONS more words.
Evie is a NAIT baby
#2 Due in October
DD is 22 months and is in speech therapy. She can say "mama", when prompted, "cat" (for basically any 4 legged animal she sees) "abba" for "baba", pa- ga- ka. She can sign milk, more, all done, eat, up, and wave hi and bye. She can also it her signs together like "more eat" or " more milk". We've been in speech therapy for 2 weeks and she can now say "hep" when we ask her if she wants help.
We are not to 20 months yet but LO has a good amount of words. He only had about 5 at 12-15 months, then at 17 months had a language boom. He now has several 2-3 word phrases he uses like brush my teeth, what is that, my momma, i can draw, thank you, Im/it's stuck, look at that, etc in addition to about 40-50 single basic words like naming his body parts eyes, nose, teeth, hair, cat, doggie, no, uh uh, cheese, cup, dinky (the cat at daycare), mine, baby, momma, dada, book, truck, duck, car, etc.
A good chunk of these words/phrases started once he started at daycare, vs being in home with a nanny. So I think being around other kids 2-3 years old has helped with this.
