it's so cute these days around here: hiroyuki has begun to babble. sometimes it sounds like 'dadadamyayamyamamyada' or 'gagagagagaaaaah' or even 'hey!hey!hey!' and he talks at the top of his voice as well. sometimes he sounds angry and then he starts to cry, especially if he feels ignored. and that's another thing--he often feels ignored and has to be in the middle of the action. even if that action is mommy and daddy having dinner. we often have to trade off holding him while the other eats. *sigh* he is so cute, though.
