You know, you have to take message board tales of what babies are doing with a grain of salt, because I think a lot of moms exaggerate their babies abilities - and probably not even on purpose, and even to themselves. I see it IRL all the time, friends claiming their child is saying mama or dada, and the kid is barely saying m-m-m, it could only be considered a word by someone who really wants to hear it as one, know what I mean? I just looked back at my youngests PR, and when our babies were 6 months, only 7 people posted that their babies had just begun babbling, so we can safely assume the other 30 or so weren't, right? I know Kate wasn't. All the books I have read vary, but in general they say babbling begins around 6-7 months, and babbling that sounds like words (mama, dada etc) normally appears between 7 and 9 months, he's got time
