He seems to have at least one new word a day now. Sometime before March 24, he said "boots." On March 24 he signed "cheese" and drank some water from a small bathroom cup by himself without crushing the cup to a pulp and without spilling very much.
He says water that sounds like "why." Other unknown dates of origination: "blind" (as in window blind), "rice."

March 25 - "box" "squish"
March 26 - "bits" He also drank some orange juice from a real (glass!) cup all by himself with no spilling!!
March 28 - "granola"

He continues to be a great helper, unloading clothes from the dryer, bringing items here and there for us. Yesterday while Jon was reading the mail, Jonathan was interested also. When he was playing with a postcard and letter that came together, I asked him if Daddy had seen the postcard yet, and he went over and brought it to Jon! Then Jon thanked him and said he could put the letter in the trash if he wanted, and he did. There was even another letter there, and he picked the right one to throw away.

He's so smart! Looking at his "drinking OJ" picture: I don't have the physical smarts to reach across a table while standing on a chair to grab a full glass of milk without spilling!

He now uses "box" for any container, including buckets, baskets, and pockets.

He can also drink from a cup with one hand.

"He now uses 'box' for any container, including buckets, baskets, and pockets." That's some sort of developmental milestone, as I recall, though I don't remember what it's called -- generalizing like that.
