According to BabyCenter, our little two-and-three-quarters-year-old boy
- Knows about 200 words by 24 months and 450 words by 30 months.
- Uses two words together by 24 months and three- to four-word sentences by 36 months.
- Sings songs and knows a nursery rhyme or two.
I think they got their numbers a little confused. He’s speaking in paragraphs of what seems like 200 words, and knows about 450 songs, all of which he sings in a running concert all day long.
And all of which we have to sing to him after we put him in his crib every night.
