jude has finally begun to say ‘no’. though hearing the word will undoubtedly grow old soon enough, right now, it is simply adorable. she says no in a very polite way, as if she doesn’t want to hurt your feelings by saying it. furthermore, it comes out sounding like a question, with her little lilting voice. and the accompanying head nod? totally rivals that of stevie wonder in a ‘boogie on reggae woman’ moment.
