Babbling and Jalapenos

Now I've gotten a lot of criticism on this video.  "Why would you ask Luke to say jalapeno?  I can't even say jalapeno!"  My answer is simple.  Luke has mastered the Spanish "j" sound, or the cat hissing sound, as you can see.  I try to tell him every Spanish word I know because it's best to get kids exposed to different sounds earlier on and they'll have an easier time grasping other languages.  And that is why we talk about jalapenos.  (In reality, when you talk to yourself and your baby all day, you run out of English things to say and you start talking about jalapenos).
