As for Francesca’s developmental skills, Jason couldn’t be more excited as his little girl is "no longer an infant," allowing for some quality interaction between the two.  According to the proud father, "she is pointing, clapping, and waving," all of which Jason describe as "pretty great."

Francesca is Jason’s first child with wife Amanda Anka.

Francesca is too cute for words!

I know what he means but the way he worded it is a little funny…
I think he means the kind of parent who shows you pictures even without being asked! I wouldn’t really “shake my head” at someone who showed me a picture if I had asked to see one! I would be more surprised if someone did not show me a picture after I asked. Also, maybe “stupid” little thing isn’t the best wording choice! Just “little thing” would have been fine because the things babies do are brilliant no matter how small because they are always learning and growing.

"We weren't trying to have kids. We left it up to fate. I knew there was a possibility, but I was really excited. Even if you are trying, just to see a positive result is shocking!"
