Jackson has become quite the talker. I started trying to write down the words he knows, but honestly he knows so many, and learns more each day, that I won’t be able to list them all. He is an enthusiastic talker, and you can see the excitement on his face when he is able to communicate.
For today, here’s what Jackson says:
Annkk oooo (Thank you)
Wew wum (welcome)
Luuu yoooo or yuvvvooo (love you)
Jay CUP (Jacob–his favorite word!)
Apoo (apple–or any other fruit)
Mean! (Used when jacob takes something from him)
Eww! (He says this a lot)
Eat eat eat eat!
Bah (bar = clif z bar)
He also will tell me a secret sometimes, because he’s had his brother or I whisper in his ear, and he whispers baby gibberish into my ear so sweetly.
He really likes to tell people they are stinky by waving his hand in the air (like you might wave the smell away from your nose) and saying “eewww!” It was his first title joke: he would point at me and do the stinky hand wave and laugh and laugh.
Josh likes to ask him for a big hug, during which he (Josh) will make a sound to indicate his great exertion. When you ask Jackson for a big hug he does the same, hugging you and letting out an “argh!”
