This seems as good a place as any for me to track Henry’s words and/or approximations. I will update it regularly. Boring to most, invaluable to me.
Henry’s words at 18 months: (3) mama, dada, ha (for hot).
words said once and then lost: duck, dog, clock. These have yet to reappear
Almost no imitation with prompting at this point. Aside from mamamama, dadadada…little to no babbling and not any mixed consonant babbling. Used pointing, grunting and the sound “eh” for almost everything. It was at this point we had an evaluation with early intervention and the ball got rolling.
Henry’s words at 28 months:
(5) words without any prompt: mama, dada, this, dat (that), hot
(10) words he imitates with prompt: up, out, hat, boo, me, knee, pee, be, papa, yes, baby,
sounds and approximations with prompting: mo (more), papa, ba or buh buh (for ball, bubbles and bye), eh, wa wa, nana, eeee, ooooh, ah, ssss (for snake sound), zzz (to make z sound or sleeping sound), oheee (for meow), and some letter sounds for: e, f, h, k, l, m, p, s, t, v, z
