Within the last few weeks, a wonderful thing happened. JJ turned 18 months and that "language explosion" I had heard so much about started showing up! Very exciting. Just about every day he has a new word. He had a handful of words before then, but its really remarkable how much he has to say now. We even got a "Joseph"! Before we only heard an occasional "JJ".
But the part that REALLY gets me is he understands a lot more too. Specifically, I can ask for a kiss. And get one! He'll lean in and give me a smooch.
It's the best. thing. EVER.
Kisses right back at you, little man.
