Jackson's Words

Jackson is becoming quite the talker. He has said "Ma-ma" for quite some time now. But now he has added "Whatzat?" and "ball" to his repertoire. He asks for things quite proficiently by pointing and grunting [Uuuuuh, uuuuuuuuhhhh!]. If you pick up something he doesn't want, he shows his disapproval by arching his back, throwing back his head and howling. If you do pick up the thing he wants, he rewards you with one of his huge heart-melting smiles.

On Thursday he pointed and went "Uuuuuuuuhhhh" at a basket on the counter. He was (as anyone could see) clearly asking for pears. Unfortunately the pears weren't ripe yet. How exactly do you explain that to a 15-month old? Or the fact that he can't have the glass salt shaker that he is very clearly asking for? Watch out world, the terrible twos are just around the corner....
