Thing the first: If you say "one," Julian will now respond with "two?" Once or twice, he's even said "tree" (three).
Thing the second: We are now able to negotiate good behaviour from him. If he's whiny and cranky and irritable and generally frustrating, if I say, "Is it naptime?" he will say "no!" "Okay," I say, "then I need you to calm down a little." And then he does! How cute!
Thing the third: Not so much a cute thing, but a definite milestone... this morning he put his hand on his little tushie and said "Poo!" I was a little skeptical since I had just changed his diaper, but I asked, "Do you have a poopy diaper?" "No!!!" he cried, and ran away. I picked him up (I am bigger than him, after all) and he did, indeed have a poopy diaper!! This is the first time he's ever done that!
