I don't count it until they use the word purposefully. So like she says water "yadah" and Mummy "Mumum" and Elias "Lala"... she TOTALLY means it, and so I count it. Similarly, she'll sign milk and more, and they are both intentional, so I count those. And, I count both signed words and spoken words in the word count for the doctor, lol... at 12 months they are more interested in linguistic development than in spoken development, so long as they do indeed babble a fair range of sounds.
