He constantly talks in complete or nearly complete sentences. His vocabulary is expanding at a tremendous rate. The estimates of ten words per day for his age seem very realistic, often picking up a word within only one or two mentions.
What's even more impressive is his understanding, logical abilities and imagination. He's fascinated by more complex books (growing out of board books). He's correctly naming all the basic colors as well as matching them. He's sorting and matching shapes. And he's using his imagination all the time when he plays, everything from driving a race car to floating in space to being a fireman to cooking in the kitchen. He recites movie dialogue very well and frequently talks about things he did days ago.
It's really quite amazing and a big shift from a month or so ago, when most of these things weren't the case. It's awe inspiring and I'm (we're) really proud of him.

Yesterday, while reading a book with Moriah, he said "apple" at a picture of an apple and giggled to himself. Today, while looking at pictures with Mini Me and I, he saw a picture of Sean from last October in a maze of hay bales and said "hay". He's also said "baby" on more than one occasion. Then tonight, while reading a book with everyone, he tried to say "school bus", which came out a little mangled but still recognizable!
Just crazy but attaboy Number Two!
