Holly isn't yet 24 months but is almost there
Her speech has always been great but recently we've had a burst of new stuff and she's coming out with sentences all the time. So much fun.
I can't wait for Gabriel to start using sentences. He's only 15 months, but he already knows 40 words. I have a feeling he'll be stringing them together in no time.
Great idea for a poll. I look forward to seeing the various answers.
Omar is not 24 months yet. He speaks in 3-4 words sentences in Arabic & English. I dont count words anymore as he knows too many words in Arabic & english. We understand all what he's saying. Some words are not clear but he tries to pronounce in the right way.
Harvey says some clear words and has just started to put 2 words together like 'ta mummy' and 'mummy up'.xx
Dec attended a speech therapist from 17 months until 24 months, So for anyone one that is worried (as I can see we have some really great speakers here ) Between 30-50 words and putting 2-3 words together is normal from 18-28 months. So for anyone that isnt quite there yet, dont worry. At 24 months Dec had lots of words but he was just starting to string 2 together and now at 3.5 years he is one of the better speakers in his class.
Says some words, babbles a lot, but doesn't speak in sentences X
Harvey is seeing a speech therapist too the bronchiolitis he had at the beginning of the year put him back.x
Phoebe is 26 months and can speak very well, in sentences which most people can understand.
I put it down to my DH, he is a chatterbox and has chatted to her constantly about what he is doing from the day she was born, now I cant shut either of them up!
morgan is 22 months and isn't great at talking she does say some words and is coming out with more but in my area they have to be at least 3 before they will be referred to speech therapy unless its serve
emily speaks in perfect sentences
she said her first word at 4 months
and never stopped
my LO dosnt talk can say 6 words when he likes but thats it sometimes i feel like a failure because of it but hes being referred to home talk and a hearing specialist because of it all
Chloe speaks in clear sentances, she chats and chats and chats, I can understand ALL she says, most people can understand alot of what she says, then at her 2 year check the other day they asked about her speech, I told them it was good and all she can say etc and would she say 1 word???? NO AAAGGGHHH
Ruby speaks in sentences very clearly, e.g 'can Ruby go to the swings with daddy?'
Ellis is 25 months and only has about 10 words if that and doesn't string 2 words. He "talks" lots but its like a made up language. Of the 7 babies we've known since they were a few weeks old at baby club he is the eldest and the least developed speechwise. My CM says that he never shuts up and wishes she understood him. I will admit I am getting worried now and considering seeking advice from my GP. My local HV useless; Ive not bothered with them since his 1 year check.
Just turned two and speaks in sentences /paragraphs all the time with (mostly) correct use of pronouns like me, mine, my, his, your, you, etc. Understandable by others and has been for ages.
Knows 20+ songs & nursery rhymes and sings fragments of them constantly e.g. rain, rain go away, come again another day. Or can recite most of Humpty Dumpty in a row. Still sings the 'baa baa yes sir' song as opposed to baa baa black sheep though, don't what she's got against sheep.
She's always loved books and likes to be read to all the time.
But whilst her speech is good for her age, I wouldn't say she's particularly ahead on the physical side. She's doing all the normal things but nothing more. Fine motor skills are pretty good though - she loves jigsaw puzzles.
Good heavens! Mine certainly couldn't say any words at that age -- wow!
No, I wouldn't worry. I think that made-up-language speech is a sign of a bright child -- I really do! And plus -- I bet you anything there are words in there, but he's just not saying them clearly enough for you to understand. I bet you he's saying words, and you don't know it.
She sounds like Ruby speech wise, plus I'd also noticed Ruby wasn't ahead physically. I would actually Ruby seems less physically able in some ways. Ruby doesn't even know how to bounce on a trampoline and still walks/runs too fast for herself and falls over.
She is also good on the fine motor skill side too.
Oh, no. He's probably just more of a thinker than a talker!
My brother didn't say his first word until he was two years old. He could only say one word - "dog"! Back then, nobody talked about speech therapy or anything. They just said "wait." And I promise you, he learned how to talk, just like everyone else does, in his own sweet time. And today, he's an unusually intelligent and successful person.
Besides, all toddlers are ahead on some things and not on others. Mine is behind on potty training -- 24 months old and no sign of being ready. Other kids her age are either already potty trained or at least expressing interest, but she just goes on her merry way, not even letting us know when her diaper needs changing. She just doesn't care. Am I worried she'll be 35 years old and not potty trained someday? No way! This is just her little thing she's being slow about -- and that's just fine.
