yeah I think the quiz is off, b/c my baby girl was babbling at about 2 mo. as well and has been "talking" up a storm ever since and now at 5 mo is saying ma ma (no da da yet)

I hate to brag but.... my daughter started babbling non-stop when she was 8 weeks old and we've not had a quiet moment since. Her first word (that wasn't mama or da - which is what she calls her dad) was at 11 months and was birds ("buh-duhs"), which she said when we were visiting a duck pond at our park. Of course, I did only get 3/6 on this!
