Jack has these series of books about Elmer, the most colorful elephant in the world. He reads them every day. I only tell you this because he's getting so good at recognizing words. When we get to this page about Elmer playing hide and seek, I can ask him where Elmer is and he finds him!
Just a tiny bit of his colorful trunk sitting out of the bush and he finds him. So cool! All day I ask him where things are and he can point them out. We find the fridge, toaster, microwave, bedroom, shower, bathroom, dinosaur, TV, curtains, and pool. John is particularly happy that Jack can march us over and point to the Pavement/Sonic Youth poster as well as hightail it across the entire house to his guitar when we tell him to. So, while he can't say a darn word, he's getting good at understanding them.
