my DD is 25 mo, she has about 80 words now and can communicate her needs pretty well. She hit the 50 words mark a long time ago and I thought she was about to have a word explosion but it's not happening. She repeats words often but she's picking new words at a slow pace. I ear a lot of mom talking about how their DC started picking up 2, 3 or more new words a day by that age. She will pick one per week at best.
Second ting is she strings words in a weird way: she can say "bye bye daddy" or "sit down mama", "yogourt please" but most of the time she will use single words or make non sense phrases like: "mama blagaboloblabla story" . I know she's asking for a story but she mixes words with senseless babble a lot and I wonder if that's normal or if she's delayed ? Some kids can have conversations at her age so, I'm worried
The Talkingpoint website is really good. This page tells you what they should be doing between 18 and 24months, This one between 2 and 3 years.. Remember your dd is right at the start of that one.
They have a progress checker page and
An Enquiry service where you can e-mail or phone and speak to a Sp& Language Therapist and ask for advice.
It is a charity and offers a free service.
Sounds absolutely fine. Some children are talking fluently by this age, some aren't. Joining words together is great.
Agree with cedoren this sounds normal. Have dc2 the same age whose speech is just like you described. Dc1 was v similar. She is now 5 and very talkative/articulate/literate.
If she understands you, can follow instructions and is communicating well, I wouldn't worry at all at this stage.
