and…we discovered this all on our own…he can count to 30. He could probably go higher but he starts objecting around twelve and by the time he gets to 30 he’s not a happy camper.
*Covers ears* ALLLLLLLLLL DOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNEE!
We stop the torture about that point although I will admit that I am laughing my @ss off at him the whole time1.
The best part is, really, you can’t force anyone to count, right? They just stop talking and *poof* they’re done! Monkey has a weakness that we exploit mercilessly though. If we repeat the last number he said, he feels compelled to say the next in the sequence. It’s quite hilarious. Poor kid.
