Jack is an expressive baby. He has all sorts of sounds and moods...here are a few of his moods: fussy, sleepy, happy, excitable, calm, interested, bored, and interactive. In the video below, Jack is happy, and excitable, and interactive. He wants us to pay attention to him.
Jack and I often have long, meaningful conversations; the most common topic is nursing. Here's how they typically go.

Rachael: Yes, Jack?
