Iv a feeling we wont consider Connor to be talking til he says a really distinct word like cat or mango

everything he does so far seems close but not really for instance he says mama but not really to me its more along the lines of anytime he gets mad or upset he goes mamamamamamamamamamamammamamammamamamammuuuuuum sometimes he does it while reaching for me but normally thats becuse he wants my boobs when hes upset lol.

same with dada he says it but continuously and normally when angry some times it even sounds kinda like die die die die die which is a little creepy when he happens to be hitting whatever toy managed to offend him lol

are we being hyper critical and that counts or are we right on holding off on calling it saying a word?

I am the same way...when a kid says a word and knows what he/she is saying and means it...that is what I consider "talking." I know everyone has their own definition, though.

For example, Claire's first word was "kitty" although it sounded more like "key." When the cat came in the room she'd say "key, key" and chase him

Bryan and I were just talking about this!! My view is the same as you two's! When she knows she is saying a certain word, that's what I consider her first. She's tried to say "donner" (our dog's name) but it's come out more like "daaa-aaa". Lol
And she says mamamama and dadadada but we're not 100% convinced it's purposeful.

Same as you all. I think they definitely are saying the words but its not distinct yet.

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.

Just this weekend Abigail will go over and pick up her rubber-ducky and very clearly say "duck." So fun!

I also consider it when he says things with meaning. He has about 5 words.

I feel the same way, though I didn't actually consider DD talking until about 18 months, when she had a language explosion and suddenly everything she said made total sense lol
