When do LOs begin to talk?? Courtney is very very vocal with all different sounds and stuff like mama, dada, and nana but when is it they can copy back what you have said?! I remember my mums friends lil boy being 11 months old and reciting back to me my OHs name David!! I remember it so clearly cos OH broke his leg and I was doing a lil film on my phone for him and this lil boy would have been 11 and a half months old and he was going "dave-id, dave-id, dave-id" like over and over again!! I understand this is probably quite early for a LO... so what age roughly can they do it?!?!
