More Words

Vinny is becoming more and more verbal, and it's really exciting. He's learned that words get you somewhere. Over the weekend, he and Jeff were visiting Granny and Granddad, and they were sleeping in the same room (Jeff in the bed, Vinny in the Pack-n-Play). Jeff said he was awakened by Vinny, standing in his crib, staring at him, and reciting all the words he knows for food. Jeff got the hint, fed him, and all was well.

He's also learned to say the word "no." His first negative word was "Ning-ning," which meant that he was unhappy. That morphed into "nay-nay," and it's now "no-no."

He's learning even more body parts: he can identify his tongue, his arm, and his knee in addition to his mouth, nose, eyes, and ears.

I'm really enjoying his expanding vocabulary and I'm looking forward to seeing what he learns next!

I'm so sorry we missed seeing them. John D was sick. Grrrr. I know Vinny's grown so much since we saw him last.
