When people ask me if Jesse can talk yet, I say he does a little. He says Mama, and sometimes he'll say Dada, nini (goodnight), buh buh (bye bye), but other than that the doesn't really say too much.
Unless you count the inflections he uses when he "says" things.
I came home the other day and the sitter said he didn't say it, but she could have bet he did based on the inflections in his voice she heard "Look at this T---" and he was showing her something.
This morning I gave Noah and Simon hugs and kisses and was about to walk out of the room when Jesse toddled over to me. I had already hugged and kissed him, but I'm always game for one more. So I squatted down and hugged him and said, "I love you." As I let go of him he turned away and I could have sworn he said "I love you."
I looked at the sitter and she looked at me, "Didn't that sound like he said 'I love you'?" She said, "I know, his inflections are right on."
So how much does he talk? I don't know. But I do know he loves me. He told me.
