The babies are much more vocal than JR ever was. They squeak, squeal and make all kinds of noises constantly. Kyle isn't very articulate; his talking sounds like "oh! ooo! eee!" If you threw in a "woo-hoo!" and a "fabulous" you'd think you were having a conversation with me. On the other hand, Reed sounds like he's trying to say real words. He says things that sound like he's trying to say, "truck", "duck", and today I swear he said, "desk". So everytime Reed says one of his words, I repeat what I think he was trying to say. Jason, of course, thinks I'm ridiculous. So today after Reed said, "desk" I said, "Desk!". Reed said it again, but this time Jason beat me to the punch and hollered out, "Lamp shade! Did you say 'lamp shade'? Did you hear that? He said, 'lamp shade'!" I just had to laugh and admit that maybe Jason's right. Maybe I am stretching Reed's vocabulary a bit much...but I'm not as bad as my parents who still to this day swear up and down JR said, "backpack" when he was a baby!
