B is doing much better with his vocabulary since he started preschool this year. He can point to a lot of pictures if asked, and identify some of them on his own (with a sign or sound if not the actual word). He's a lot more interested in repeating back words and phrases, and is more understandable when he does so. Reading books to him is a lot more interactive now. It's exciting to see the progress.
One more note regarding Rock Band: If you call while one or both of us is playing, please leave a message. There is a high chance that we will not even hear the phone ring (sorry Joanna) or be in the middle of a part where it's hard to pause if we happen to hear it ring. At least we don't play all day (or get many phone calls for that matter...).
