Words! We Got Words!

This world-class little mime seems to have decided at last that words may be worth a shot.  We've got five now!

-yes ("yosh" or "yehyehyehyehyeh" depending on the level of excitement)
-no ("nuh")
-this ("dis")
-duck ("duh," when looking at a picture of a duck or when playing with a toy duck)
-Josh (clear as day..."Josh")

Yes, Uncle Josh won out over either Mama or Daddy. 

Admittedly, he's a really good uncle.

But I've let the little guy know that "Mama" and "Daddy" better be up next.

Take those 5 words, add in his baby sign language signs for "please" and "all done" and the ever-present pointer finger, and there's rarely a time I don't know what he means.  It's pretty great!
