What Do You Know About Baby Talk?

No doubt about it, moms and dads can hardly wait to hear their babe's first words.

Before stressing about your little one's speech (or lack thereof) take this quiz to see how well you know baby talk.

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!
