Chaim is really talking up a storm these days - ever since his last round of antibiotics cleared up his ears (and his hearing) he has gotten the gift of gab. I'm not sure if he is comprehensible to anyone but us, but we sure get a kick out of all the new things he says and copies.

At the grocery store this afternoon, he pointed out all his favorite foods, like plums ("gum") and cookies. He did such a good job at sitting still in the cart that I offered him a high-five and said "sweet!" He promptly replied, "weet!"

Then, in the checkout line, he saw the man in front of us pull some change out of his pocket. Chaim pointed and shouted "gedakah!!!!" (tzedakah). The man was so impressed by his association that he gave Chaim some pennies to put in the pushka for charity. What a mitzvah boy!
