jack is finally getting old enough to fulfill the purpose for which i created him...to fetch things for me. he just went to the kitchen and got me the "sbasscasso sauce" for my chili.
of course, james was like "what? she wants spaghetti sauce?", so i had to scream "tabasco" across the house...and he had to get it down for him...but i am confident that Jack will eventually learn to pronounce most words and grow tall enough to reach anything i need in the house.
