Jude's language skills are exploding. It seems like every day he says a new word. Here are a few of his most consistently-used words:

Uh-oh - this was his first "word", and is still the one he uses the most. Sometimes it comes out more like uh-ooo, or ai-ooo, but we still know what he means. When he drops something, he'll repeat uh-ooo over and over until someone picks it up for him (if he's not able to get it himself).

Hi - this one is a real crowd pleaser, especially among the grandma set. It comes with a huge smile.

Da-da - an obvious favorite

Moo - Jude, what does the cow say?

Hoo - Jude, what does the owl say?

Dog-dog - anytime he sees a dog or a picture of a dog

Hug - although the untrained ear might not be able to figure this one out

Bobo - the name of the monkey in his HUG book

Ball - anytime he sees a ball

Du-t - this is how he says "duck"

There are a couple of others he's said a few times, like "house" and "mouse", and sometimes he'll deign to call me "Mama". I can't wait to see what he has to say in a month from now!

I love this photo of Jude and the leaves. He ran and played and fell in leaf piles all afternoon on Wednesday. Wish I could have been there!

That's great that his lexicon is really picking up speed! I'm sure he'll be talking up a storm in a few short weeks.
