First words are happening, people, so make sure that your ears are tuned in and your phone is primed. KidsHealth.org reports that around this age your little one will have some vocabulary. It won’t be perfect, but he she might be using partial words. For example, he/she could be saying “bye” or “bye-bye” instead of “goodbye.” Or, maybe your little one has learned a “proper” word but is referring to everything as that word. KidsHealth.org gives the example of a 9-month-old saying “mama” and “dad” but using the words to mean other people — or even things — besides you and your partner. It’s still progress.
