Learning a new language

I mentioned before that Quinn is starting to talk. He also is building up a good list of words of phrases he understands and does an action to:

Clap, clap, clap
Kiss kiss
Open, close (with the fists)
Twinkle, twinkle (identical to open close, but hey, he's just a baby - give him a break!)
Twist, twist, twist (full body action with this one)
How big is Quinn? (arms out wide - So big!)
Knock knock

These are my two favorites:
1. Peekaboo - Say it and he'll put one hand on each side of his mouth, index finger against his face, his pinky sticking out. In no way is his face covered up, but it sure is cute.
2. Ta da! First the hands go on the tummy, palms down and fingers wide. Then up go the hands. But because of his brachial plexus injury, the left hand goes all the way up but the right hand sort of sticks out in front of him. It's beyond adorable. Come to think of it, I'd better get a picture!
