Second stage: 7 to 12 months

The second stage commonly occurs between 7-12 months. A baby recognizes spoken words and patterns -- such as peek-a-boo and other play rhymes -- and enjoys sound imitations. Playing with sounds and intonations is common and is a very important part of development. He or she recognizes the connection between words heard and body parts, objects, or actions seen, but can usually reproduce a vocabulary of only 1-3 words.
