At 12 months:
Your baby will attach "mama" or "dada" to the right person. Your infant can respond to one-step commands for example, ("Give it to Mommy”).

At 18 months:
A toddler can say nouns (ball, cuppy), names of special people (grandma), and a few action words/phrases. The infant adds gestures to her speech, and may be able to follow a two-step command for example, ("Go to the bedroom and get the toy.")
At 2 years old:
Your toddlers speech is becoming understandable and they can combine words. Speaking simple sentences like "Mommy bye-bye."
At 3 years old:
Your child can use sentences two to four words long, follow simple instructions, and they will repeat words overheard in conversations. I know this one all to well. My son is 3 and he repeats EVERYTHING he hears. So remember to keep in mind what you surround them with parents. If you use foul language, your toddler is going to. Check out my Toddler Vocabulary page for more great advice!
At 4 years old:
Your child can understand most sentences that are four to five words long, can say his/her name and age. Any person should be able to understand your child when they speak to them. Their language at this age should be completely developed.
