Hi Shana,

Your son sounds like he is doing great. At 14 months, a child should be able to just say mama and dada only. It sounds like he is saying a little more than that (3 words). He should also be able to wave bye-bye. At 17 months, he should be able to use 2 words together; 18 months, use 3 words; 21 months, point to a body part when asked; 22 months, use 6 words; 24 months, speak several words; and at 3 years, he should be able to be understood 80% of the time.

Hope this is helpful. Good luck with your son. I hope everything turns okay.
