My 14 month old says, "more please" and babbles a ton, says every vowel and consonant there is, but doesn't say any other words. He is saying mom and dad, and maybe in context, but I'm not sure. Oh, and he says, "fan" maybe, lol, clearly he's not a linguist quite yet. I always hear people say, "as long as they understand you, that's what's important". I'm just not sure how much he understands. He has perfect hearing, so that's not an issue. He does look at us, you can tell he thinks about what we are saying, but doesn't do much in response. He will go get his elmo, but that's about it. In the bath he knows to pass me his toys before he gets out, but I think that's because of habit and repetition. Anyways, just wondering if this sounds normal or not? Also, he never seems to understand "no", or he's very against paying attention to it. He's got this thing with the dog dish, he puts his fingers in it if it's on the ground. I've said no, yelled no, moved him, distracted him, swatted his hand, swatted his bum, nothing helps. I couldn't believe even swatting didn't phase him. He wasn't bothered by it at all. Mabye because i was doing it in a wimpy way, I don't' know. I just wanted to check in and see how he fairs as far as you guys think?
