Our baby just turned 1 on the 22nd of June and she still only says 'mom' 'dad' or 'daddy' and she tries to say 'doggy' even if it's a cat
But other than those 3 words, she hasn't really started to 'speak' other than her sounds and pointing...she's very good at body language communication especially with 'pointing'
But as of yet, she hasn't been saying a whole lot as far as understanding her goes...so i would say it's probably pretty normal? we practice with her all the time...we'll repeat words with her while driving in the car. but the most clear word she says, perfectly is, of course, 'mom' i wouldn't worry, unless your baby isn't saying anything at all (as in no sounds or anything...) if your baby is just flat out quiet all the time besides crying, i would ask your pedia.
