One of the awesome things about being able to watch Jake day in and day out is seeing how he has really started comprehending things we are saying. Jake isn't saying specific words yet (although he likes having conversations with us)....like, he won't really say "ball" or "more" or even "mama" (he says dada constantly, though....), BUT he comprehends what those words mean. I can say, "lets read a book....go grab mommy a book" and he will go grab a book and bring it back to me. It works the same way with saying to go get a ball. My favorite is when I ask him where his dog is. We have this build-a-bear DOG that Chris gave me several years ago - and Jake loves it, so it's "his dog" (and the closest thing he will probably ever get to one....I know, I'm mean....they are just so much work). This video is cute, though........because when you ask him where his dog is.....he goes and gets it - and I was able to get it on video today :-) I love this boy!!
