Apparently, the kid not only repeats sounds, but appears to be able to match words with objects. Crazy.
And since then, he has correctly identified a car, a duck, a ball and his bottle. Without prompting.
I know that all babies do this, and I know that it is totally ridiculous to think that "ca" is actually car, but it is all amazing to me. That blob of cells that we almost left in the freezer can say "cheese." Un-freaking-believable.
