Working and Merlin's words

So, it's been a while...
A job found me (literally) - possibly 2, actually. I'm working part-time in a law library for a labour law firm. Kind of my dream job. Really friendly folk and I have a lot of autonomy.
The second is a few hours a week lending support to families with a child that has been diagnosed as deaf or hard of hearing. I've been shortlisted for that, so I don't know yet.

My main reason for posting is to say how excited we are with Merlin's progress. He's been talking/signing up a storm. He had about 10 words and signs before the implant. He now has over 150. For those that want to keep up to his signing, check out this
list of words Merlin knows.

Oh, and I should follow up with my Leopard rant... the 10.5.2 release seems to have fixed my problems. My mac is a mac again. But I still say Apple could have acknowledged the problems instead of acting like they didn't know what we were talking about.

Oh yeah, and we bought a house. More on that later, I'm sure.
