Jude has the cutest way of saying things.  Although he's still coming up to speed with his speech skills, he has made HUGE progress in the past two and a half months.  He's gone from not wanting to repeat anything you say to a little mockingbird.  The words he repeats aren't usually even close to accurate but getting better everyday.

For example, I say "motorcycle" and Jude says "coco".  I say "truck" and Jude says "quou."  I say "Karen" and he says "Momma."  Yes, he calls his babysitter momma.  I'm trying not to freak out over that.  He loves her very much so I'm trying to see the bright side.

He is starting to make two words sentences but only very infrequently.  He's learned to work around it though.  When he sees something he wants (like a plane in the sky, toy at the store, special treat) but pats his chest and says "mine, mine, mine."  It's his way of saying I want that.

One of his cutest words is his version of "more."  He's just recently started using it without being prompted and says it when he wants more juice, food and water for his squirt gun.  When he says it, Adam and I find ourselves repeating it for a few minutes..."moi."  Think about the way you say me in French (moi) but say it slower with an emphasis on the "m" sound..."mmmmoi."  Cutest thing I've ever heard.  I'll try to capture it on video in the next couple of days.
