Nope. He might seem to forget some of them as he learns others though.

Sounds streets ahead of my 13month old daughter who says absolutely nothing, nowt, zilch.

Now I think I should be worried.......other 2 were good talkers

My DS did not talk till he was nearly two and now never shuts up at 5 and has an excellent vocabulary commented on by his teachers. I think he was just a bit lazy. Don't worry they all learn at their own pace and talking early is not a sign of intelligence. A friend of ours who is now Group FD for a large firm did not speak till he was three and then said a whole sentence.

No. My ds1 didn't speak any recognisable words until he was 2.2. Ds2 had 5 words when he was 14 months, but did develop his subsequent speech very quickly (ie was talking in sentences by 18 months.) They are both highly intelligent children at the top of their classes in school now.
