He wants to talk

Just within the past couple of days, Troy has decided that he really wants to talk.  He looks you straight in the eye, and very earnestly unleashes a string "words" in an attempt to have a grown up conversation with you.  Now, to you or I it is complete gibberish, but it’s very cool and fun to see the little man trying his level-best to verbally communicate with us.

He’s growing up so damned fast.  I wish we could slow down the time!

Update: And to illustrate just how quickly he’s growing up, we no longer hear the "Pawdnum-pawdnum-pawdnum" described above (though he has moved on to try spelling out words using just the letters B and O!).
