My DS had I don't know how many words at that point. He was speaking in 5 word sentences by 17 months, although not always using pronouns, etc. One sentence I remember at about 18-19 months was "that lion man scared my Caden boy" telling us something on a movie had scared him. He was also very advanced in gross motor skills. Not so great with fine motor-maybe not behind, but definitely not ahead.
DD is 17 months now. I don't count the words, but she is really having a major language explosion the last couple of week. Mama, Dada, mine, all done, nose, batman, please, hi good girl (to any animal
), several more I can't think of. She is also average in gross motor. BUT her fine motor is a lot more advanced. So it's pretty interesting to see the differences between the 2 kids.
