Finding his voice

Gavin seems to have found his vocal cords recently. He's always been good at crying, and making noises with his mouth shut has been a habit for a long time (like grunting or other things), but he has recently mastered opening his mouth when he uses his vocal cords so that he makes the "aaaa" sound. No true consonants yet, really, but several variations of "aaa" and "ooo" and "eeee" (but only the short e sound). Right now he is lying in the bassinet kicking and moving his arms so that the mobile moves around and talking to himself. He seems to enjoy listening to himself make the noises. And it's really funny when he's saying "aaaa" while sitting on Chad's leg and Chad bounces him.
