So as Jackson is learning to talk more, I have been trying to teach him words like "Please" and "Thank You", seems more polite than grunting when he wants things, and although it is a work in progress, I think he's starting to understand. Today while he was finishing up eating, he held out his hand, so I shook it and said, "Nice to Meet You!", and he had the biggest smile, so he put his hand up again and I repeated. This is now a fun game he likes, so I was fortunate enough to catch it on tape. Enjoy!
He has also really been loving his Music Together class he goes to with Julia on Fridays, so I try to play his songs as much as possible. He has this Mickey Mouse drum that came filled with little instruments, like clackers, a harmonica, maracas, and even a recorder. He now knows how to blow on the recorder to get some sound out and it's pretty cute!
