As you can see, he was very excited...
Then he ate and went to sleep.
Justin props himself up like a champion
Loud and Loquacious
The sounds he is making now are incredible and way more phonetic than the coo-ing sounds we caught on tape a few weeks ago (sorry... no video... we ran out of tape!). Sometimes they are so close to words that it's almost hard to believe that it'll still be months before he starts talking for real. And if you ignore him and try to talk over him, he'll only try to compete with you and talk faster and louder himself.
The first 2-syllable (word?) utterance that he got hooked on sounded just like he was saying "AFLAC", as in the insurance commercials. It was hilarious, and also crazy how close he sounded to the real thing. So of course we'd walk around asking each other, "what's the name of that insurance that we need to get?"... a la the commercials... to which (if he was in the mood) Justin would play the role of the AFLAC duck and promptly respond on cue, "AFLAC"... hmmm.. okay. maybe you had to be there. It was funny. Trust me on this one.
All Grown Up
Oh, and one last thing... As quickly as he started the finger sucking thing that I talked about a few posts ago, Justin wanted me to make sure that I mentioned that it only lasted about two days. Then he moved on to other things, his most recent discovery is playing with his bib, shirt, blanket, or any fabric he can get his hands on.
But as for those previous habits... he said finger sucking is for babies.
