Jack has an amazing number of words these days. He surprises me all the time with things he knows how to say. Earlier this week it was “bye” and then he added “hi,” which he says in a lilt that reminds me of Mr. Hanky from South Park. It’s the goofiest thing ever and I have no idea where he learned it. Here is a list of words he can say, a pretty amazing amount for a not quite 13-month-old:

milk (“mil”)
Kristina (“nuhnuh”) – his daycare provider
book (“buh”)
bath (“bah”)
grandma (“gahmah”)

I’m sure there are more I’m not thinking of, and more that I can’t decipher. He is quite the talker, little Jackie. I can’t imagine where he gets it from. 😉
