Well, not really. She can say a few words already though. She started saying "mama" when she was about 6 or 7 months old, but now I'm very sure that when she says a word, she does mean the actual object/person instead of arranging sounds in her mouth randomly. I know this because when she says "bear", she points to the nearest teddy bear that she can see.

I've always noticed that cognitively, she developed very well. She seemed to understand certain words from a very young age. Now that she's 11 months old, she's amassed a list of words to her vocabulary:

1. Mama
2. Dadd-eh (daddy)
3. Nene (nenen/milk)
4. mamam (makan)
5. Beah (bear)
6. baw (ball)
7. hshy (fishy)
8. kish (kiss)
9. buwah (bunga)

There are other words which she cannot pronounce but knows the meaning of, like "butterfly" or "tweet tweet" or "balloon". If you ask her "Mana gigi?" she will open her mouth and point. If you ask her "Hana nak apa?" she will immediately point to the thing that she wants (if she can't say it).

She can't walk yet, and as of now, is still crawling, but I don't mind. She can take her time :)
