i'm not ready for this....

People have been telling me for a while now that Lil J is going to start really "talking" - as in sentences - pretty soon.  I, myself, have been fantasizing about the exact moment for months now.  The day I'll be able to talk to him and actually get a comprehensible response.  But then it occurred to me that I am actually enjoying the current moments with Lil J.  He understands everyone and does things as told {half the time}, yet it still surprises us every time he does actually understand!  I'm not sure if I'm ready for him to speak full sentences!!

Guess I better be careful what I wish for.....

Last night I came home after a long day at work and an even longer night at school {I was so tempted to leave class after the instructor just droned on and on about meaningless topics just to pass time} and Lil J was excited to see me when I finally walked in the door.  So excited, in fact, that he just kept talking and kept talking.  Half of it I didn't understand, but the other half.....was surprisingly English!!  Wow, I thought to myself, this is crazy!  And then for a split second, I thought I had wished for something too soon.  I kind of wanted Lil J to go back to his one word answers.  Back to his complete gibberish.  I wasn't ready yet!

But it really isn't about me, is it?  It's about him.  My Lil J.  And he is ready to express everything that he has held inside {or screamed out loud} for 27 months.  He is no longer my baby:

Daddy and Lil J {fresh out of the oven!}
He is now a little man:

I just can't wait to hear what he has to say next!!
