My 15 month old ds says lots of words, but it's a fairly recent development, like in the past 3 weeks or so. Just an explosion of imitating us and coming up with his own stuff. He's not very articulate, but we understand him, and that's what matters! He now says:
no (all day long...)
a word for avocado, which I can't even begin to spell!
he also has signs for-more, milk, all done, fish, kitty, dog, bunny, hot, cold, diaper, peekaboo, hat, car, hungry
there are probably more, but I'm tapped out! Like I said, they aren't intelligible by most people except dp and I, but he does talk a lot!
I wouldn't worry too much about your son. My son went through the grunting stage too (very annoying, I have to say!), and he didn't talk a lot until the last couple of months. I bet your son will have a language explosion soon too! Good idea to take him to the dr too, just to rule out a hearing problem or speech problem.
