He walked out of the room and Lucas and I continued to talk and walk things to and from the dining room. Then Xander toddled back in. With his cup.
I remember we both stopped and just looked at each other in surprise. At that exact moment we realized - not only is he hearing us, he's understanding us. He wasn't a baby anymore.

Flash forward to a few days ago. Paxton had been a bit fussy for a few days, and he was walking around whining a bit. I tried to play with him, but he kept whining. He walked out of the play room and I stayed and kept playing with Piper. I heard him walk back in so I turned around. He was carrying an empty milk jug that he got out of the recycling bin. He walked over and handed it to me. I said, "Ohhhhh, did you need some milk?" He grinned and spun around and started walking toward the kitchen.
