Hey! Lewis definitely has some words. I've been waiting to report just to make sure it wasn't a fluke, but I'm sure now that he says "Dee!" for tree and he seems to be saying "Mama!" with some real intention lately. He's been saying "Hi!" for a long time and I would consider that his first word. Oh! And yesterday we were playing with a ball and I asked, "Ready?" and he said, "GO!" He did it over and over! Ready, set, GO! So, this is cool.
What??! A 17 month-old baby is communicating! STOP THE PRESSES!
