Now your baby's language development is happening at a really fast pace. She would be picking up new words regularly. She can be following simple instructions and even form simple 2-3 word sentences. She knows her name, age, gender, some body parts, some colors and even answers back correctly when asked about any of these.
What you need to know
Children this age mostly refer to themselves by their name instead of me or I. This is a practice they pick up because they are used to others taking their name while referring to them. Her cognitive and language development will depend on how much time you spend talking and reading to her.
