It's amazing how much you pick up from your kids babble as well. I was around my daughters baby brothers the other day and couldn't understand a word of the stories they were interested in telling me, but my daughter understood most every word.

I have no problems understanding babbles. my little niece who is autistic is extremely delayed in her talking. she's going to turn 5 in june. Since she's been in autistic therapy, she's come a long way. she can actually talk in 3 to 4 word sentences now. I understand her when she talks where most people don't.
The first year is easy. I know what every cry means. It's funny how a mother's intuition works. You know the difference between an i have gas pain cry or i'm tired cry or i'm hungry cry all means. I would never use that gadget. It would be a useless pruchase in my household.
