Iain has been slowly building his vocabulary lately. Before it consisted of only five words: Mama, Papa, Dada, this, and yeah, with a couple other noises that served as universal nouns. But just this past week or so, he's been showing more of an interest in talking and has a few times, without prompting, broken out a word that we didn't know he knew.
A few times now he has said "shuh" (shoe). He's really funny about shoes, actually, as he loves every pair he owns, very much enjoys having them on his feet, and will bring you his outside shoes whenever he wants to go outside.
Yesterday he said "ball", and tonight he said "Hush!" at the appropriate point in his favorite story, Goodnight Moon. We always clap and cheer when he says a new word, which of course he loves.
We always pray at the end of family worship before Iain goes to bed, and we make a big point of saying "Amen" at the end. He's picked up on that and has said it several times over the past couple days. Here's a video of him showing off his new vocabulary:
