How much vocabulary should a five month old have?



Joseph, at eighteen months old, is still barely speaking at all. ย I am not too concerned at this stage as a couple of his siblings were also later talkers with no ill effects.

Anna however, at five months old, is quite the opposite…

  1. She is so adorable ๐Ÿ™‚ I want to talk to her all day ๐Ÿ™‚
    I’ve found with a large family that sometimes young siblings don’t talk till later because they have no need to. There is always someone around to see to their needs ๐Ÿ™‚ but sometimes, like with Anna, and my Oliver, they have so much to say they just have to get it out ๐Ÿ™‚
    Oliver was just the same, and now at 5, his verbal diarrhoea knows no bounds ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. So cute! My daughter didn’t even begin babbling until 8 months, and at 14 months the only words she has are ‘hello’ ‘oooh yeah!’ (which is so cute coming from a little baby!) and ‘ba!’ which basically means ‘look, look, I like that, I want that!’ (I think it’s because her favourite things at the moment are baths, (teddy) bears, and birds outside, so, ba!

    I’m not too worried, she has the personality (and the stubbornness) of a 2 year old, out in public she is always mistaken as being at LEAST 18 months, and she has comprehension and problem solving skills of a child much older. I think because she’s an only child (so far) with a SAHM she just dosen’t have a reason to talk, though I’m starting to create reasons, and trying to stop predicting her wants quite so quickly.

    I do wish she would say mama and dada as more than just random jabber sounds though!
