Rowan's spoken vocabulary has started increasing exponentially. In just the past week I've gone from cautiously acknowledging certain sounds as "words" to admitting that he actually has a vocabulary.
Rowan now says, in order of acquisition:
no (as well as "no...", "NO!", "no *headshake*", "nonononono!", and possibly "no, mama")
yeah (and "yes", to a lesser extent)
He still generally makes requests by pointing vaguely in the direction of the object (or where-ever he believes it is) and going "aeeeihh?", but he's started requesting crackers and toast by name, not just saying "toast toast toast" to himself when he's given some. It's pretty cool.
