When did your dd or ds say there first proper words and what were they?

Amanda3266 Mon 28-Feb-05 18:38:49

Hmmm! Lots of babbling from about 10 months. At 12 months was doing a high pitched "eeeeew" which was an attempt to communicate with our cat!
Said "DadDadDad" first - made Daddy's day but was said to the cat's bum. Followed by "Mum" and then "KcccccK" for "cat" (of course)!

i remember ds talking really early. not so much the first word but he would say "daddy" "nanna" and "teddy" but not "mummy"..typical eh? by the time he was 18 months we could have a proper conversation with him. i know that sounds like complete lies now but at the time i thought all 18mnth olds did that and i used to get shocked at 2 year olds who couldnt say very much. now i have dd (13 mnths) and she just says "baby" and points to anything moving! she does do "mamamamamam" and "nanananan" and knows who we are but im not really sure you can count these as first words?!! she prefers screeching to talking!

Dh reckons it was "Dada" but it wasn't she quacked first.

sansouci Mon 28-Feb-05 22:38:24

Dd says "bobble" (bottle). Poor kid, what do you expect with an alkie for a mother!

Gwenick Mon 28-Feb-05 22:38:48

DS1 - was about 14 months when he started staying 'dada', 15 months for 'mama' and about 18 months for 'ubble' (bubble). He had about 8 words by the time he turned 2 and was talking in setences at 2yrs 1 month LOL

DS2 - 'dada' around 11 months, 'mama' around 1yr - and 'nana' (banana) just this last week almost 15 months (well he's 15 months now but he was 'almost' then).

Fran1 Mon 28-Feb-05 22:38:59

D'you know, dd is only 2 and i cannot remember when she first spoke!!!! I hope i wrote it in her baby book, will have to dig it out, and make it up if i didn't

I do know that out of mummy and daddy, she said daddy for a long time before mummy got used. I pretended i didn't mind cos thats what the textbooks say will happen, and actually it was useful sometimes, cos i'd say to dp, she's calling you you go, when she was crying in her cot

Gwenick Mon 28-Feb-05 22:40:22

actually DS2 doesn't say 'mama' - he says what sounds like 'my mama' - and generally only when DH is changing his nappy or taking him out of the bath when he wants me to rescue him

expatinscotland Mon 28-Feb-05 22:54:21

i kid you not. 'wan' that' as in 'i want that' - she'd say it whilst pointing at the object of her desire. now, she's much clearer - i want that. or 'i have that' (b/c of all the times i tell her 'you can't have that').

HunkerMunker Mon 28-Feb-05 23:01:15

DS said mama from 5 months (mostly said, but sometimes mouthed in a rather cute fish-face manner!), but I'm not green enough to imagine he meant me then . He said 'boom-boom' (or boom-boom-boom-boom-boom!) from about 6 months, which was even cute at 3am!!

He's begun saying 'oggle' and 'ba' recently (nearly 11 months) as well as lots of comedy 'ooh' sounds - exactly like a cartoon baby would make if they saw something they were interested in! He's now saying mama and meaning me too And he smacks his lips when he's hungry or wants milk! Demanding little chap he is

MummytoSteven Mon 28-Feb-05 23:42:31

don't know if this counts but DS has been saying "ba ba" for bye bye back to us when we say it for the last few weeks (he's 11 months)

and yesterday he waved and said ba ba to Po on a teletubbies video!!!

wheresmyfroggy Mon 28-Feb-05 23:45:36

dd's was two(or doo as she said it) when we lined her ducks up for her, followed shortly by doo ducks

goreousgirl Mon 28-Feb-05 23:47:09

DS is 9 months and has been saying dada and dadeee for around 2 months. He often comes out with a mumeee kind of sound too.

DD (5 today) used to suck her dummy and as she got tired would say golly golly golly at around 10 months - SO CUTE - where has my little girl gone?

ETsmum Tue 01-Mar-05 08:04:14

Mumumumum, dadadada, ball and I THINK hat (ba!) by 12 months or so......We too had dadada long before mumumum, but now aged 19 months ds has evened out with them Out of interest, does anyone know when the H for hat (instead of b) will come?

DD's first clear words, aimed at the right thing, were Momma and Dadda She was about 6 months when she was saying it regularly and at us. Her next word was tractor!!!

HandbagAddiction Tue 01-Mar-05 13:13:41

Hulababy - we also got 'tractor' quite quickly too - although I think dd's first genuine word was 'duck'. Can remember how old she was exactly, probably about 12 months though. She's now 17.5 months and we have about 28 recognisable words, which include her versions of - more, socks, shoes, bubble, paper, banana, breadstick, duck, dog, tractor, car, horse, monkey (her favourite soft animal), book and oh of course Mummy!! Doesn't say Daddy at all - knows exactly who he is but shouts Mummy when she sees him .

So - although she appears to be doing well on the speech thing...she's still not walking....

tarantula Tue 01-Mar-05 13:16:18

dd jsut said her first proper word today. It was SPIDER as she pointed to tarantula. Proud Mammy moment here. She has been babbling up to this point and saying WOW and dadadad and mamam but not really meaningfully.

Hulababy Tue 01-Mar-05 13:56:31

We got tractor first I think as there was a house being built next door to us, and there was a big red tractor in the garden for ages. Also my dad works at a tractor factory, and DD loced playing with the model tractors at their house.

alicatsg Tue 01-Mar-05 14:22:46

First word was digger and since then we've had a run of roar, gargen (garden), yesh (so like his father), dadada (to the sofa....), mama (the cat) and urrgghn (me). My father swears he said peekaboo to him last week but I think thats the grandpa hormones kicking in.

All time favourite tho is NO - DAT with pointing (Thanks awfully, but could I have a look at that object instead) or NO-DAT (get off me mother I like stinking like this and don't require a nappy change)

I take it you're Norwegian, Kama, otherwise, that's VERY impressive!

My two are both later talkers, but I remember very clearly ds saying "key" in context at about 17 months and also "bubble" at about the same time (mama and dada were sort of there too). Dd's first word was 'nana, for banana at about the same age.

My dd is 17 months and saying nothing

We thought she was saying a few words some months ago but it's clear now that she wasn't.

However she does understand most things and points to objects if you ask her. I know if she wants something she says nono repeatedly and if she points at something she says dat as in whats that.

kbaby Tue 01-Mar-05 22:50:13

DD said dada and att, for cat at 6 months and didnt say mama until 2 weeks ago(9months).
She says dad and mam to everything though and the only thing that actually gets called by its name is the cat!
