In the past month or so Little C has definitely started jabbering, but what he's saying is still quite a mystery. Yesterday, he clearly said "Duck" about 13 times though. It started when he was playing with a barn toy that has a duck you insert and when you put the duck in the barn it says " says, 'quack, quack, quack'". After doing this about 300 million times, all the sudden we heard him clearly pipe up, "Duck!" "Quack!" "Duck!". of course we came running in and started holding up every duck toy we could find saying "what's this??". We were praising him profusely when he would enthusiastically point and respond, "Duck!" Of course then, this led to him bringing us other toys and proudly saying, "Duck!".

A little while later Mr. C was showing me a game he taught Little C while I was gone...he throws a ball behind the couch and asks the munchkin "where did it go??" Then Little C runs and retrieves the ball (so yes, my husband basically taught him fetch). Anyway, as soon as Mr. C threw the ball, little C put his hands up and said "Where'd it go?" clear as a bell, then ran to get the ball!! We sat there completely stunned! We couldn't believe he had just said three words! He said it again a few times, but much more garbled and never as clearly as the first time.

All-in-all it makes me wonder if he's just parroting without understanding the meaning of the words, but I'm so hopeful - I was beginning to wonder if he was ever going to talk! I'll try to get a video of the performances and tricks to post soon.

Happy Monday everyone!

P.S. The picture has nothing to do with the post, but is pretty much what every picture and video I try to take looks like these days...he's constantly trying to grab the camera!
