Good news: Milo may not have to fall back on a career in modeling or morning TV talk show hosting or being governor of Texas. He knows words! And urgently wants to say them! And can occasionally be understood! Recent additions to our short-ish list include: cheese, keys, TV, Elmo (which sounds disturbingly like "mama"), Frog ("Wog" — do we cave and give Frog a nickname?). I got an excited note from his afternoon teachers about how he'd said "turtle" and "verde." They used exclamation points, which made me think they're as worried as I am about his talking.
Well, anyway, he totally talks now. Am thinking of setting up a Twitter account or some other social media presence for him (beyond this blog, of course — he needs real readership).
