Sam's been starting to talk a little more. New additions to his vocabulary include "quack," "hoot," and "monkey," although of these three, only "quack" (or "kaack, kaack," as Sam would have it) has been making repeat appearances. He can also shriek like a monkey, which is considerable more adorable in theory then in practice. Sam is constantly adding new words to his vocabulary, but he frequently seems to think that once he's mastered a word he need never say it again, leading to a rather limited vocabulary. His favorite word continues to be "dada," which he utters during moments of delight, sorrow, boredom, or what-have-you.
Yesterday we went into DC to see the cherry blossoms, most of which had blown away. Still, it was a gorgeous day; just the perfect temperature and not too crowded. We did some photos at the Jefferson Memorial, and here you can see Sam practicing his ultra-suave moves. He performed an interpretive dance regarding everyone's favorite founding father, focusing mainly on his love of stomping grapes.
