Walky Talky

Those are Jack’s major functions these days: walking and talking.  He’s quite good at walking and we are seeing slightly less face plants lately.  He has moved on to climbing, although so far he’s kept the scaling focused on the couch, the bed, and his food seat (the kind of “high” chair that doesn’t have legs and belts onto a dining chair).  He loves to wear socks and shoes now, and knows what it means when we say “Let’s go!”  If we don’t let him out of the door, he throws a tantrum.  Walking is fun!  Apparently.

Jack seems to say new words every day.  This weekend brought socks, good, and kaka (uncle in Gujarati, which is my SIL’s other language).  I think I was finally able to decipher what he calls my boobs, which is “nana.”  Here is a list of things he can say in addition to those I posted last time:

socks
shoes (it’s so cute, he says “shh shh shoooooes”)
good
go
kaka
cheerios (“cheeyos”)
bye bye you (he’s been saying bye for a while but added you a few days ago)
Wicket (“hicket” – our cat)
uh oh
banana (“nahnuh”)
nana (“nawnaw” – his word for breastmilk)
Drea (daycare provider’s name)
bottle (bah bah)

He can also make the following sounds:
quack
moo
miaow (his favorite, apparently)
woof
neigh

Saturday night I found some old Sesame Street clips on youtube.  Jack and I enjoyed watching an oldschool “Mahnah Mahnah” song, Ernie singing about his Rubber Duckie, the Ladybug Picnic song, and the Yip Yip martians discovering a telephone (Jack thought this one was pretty hilarious).  I totally miss Sesame Street!
