Vanessa Lachey has one smart cookie on her hands.

The Dads star’s 19-month-old son, Camden John, is quickly learning to communicate with his parents and says more than just a few words.

“He says, ‘Avocado please, yogurt please, strawberries please, down please,’ or, ‘Come here,’ which means pick me up, ‘Love me, hug me, kiss me,’ — that’s his favorite thing,” Lachey, 33, told PEOPLE at the mobile launch of Farm Heroes Sagain New York City.

“He likes to learn, he’s so good. His verbal level to me is beyond what I’ve expected and he doesn’t get aggressive.”

But his language skills aren’t the only thing he’s mastering.

She’s got a new job on the sitcom Dads, but Vanessa Lachey is also busy planning not one but two birthday parties — for her son, Camden John, and husband, Nick.

“The same year I’m planning my son’s first birthday, I’m also planning my husband’s 40th birthday [in November], so it’s been quite an interesting process [with] different scales of things,” the actress, 32, told PEOPLE at the TCAs.

“I’m planning over here what kind of wine we’re gonna have and the liquor, and over here I’m like, streamers and beach balls!”

Sitting with her castmates, Tonito Castro and Brenda Song, from the Seth McFarlane sitcom (which premieres on Fox on Sept. 17), Lachey says that her life as a working mom is a dream come true.

As her son Camden John approaches his first birthday on Sept. 12, Vanessa Lachey is thinking about giving him a sibling.

“I look forward to expanding,” the actress, 32, said Thursday while promoting her new show Dads at Fox’s Television Critics Association summer press tour.

“We talked about three. I’ve always loved having a big family and truth be told, when I’m old and gray I’ll need a couple of them to take care of me!”

As for birthday party plans, Lachey has her hands full with bashes for both the men in her life.

“The same year I’m planning my son’s first birthday, I’m planning my husband’s 40th birthday!” she said with a laugh. “I’ve been [planning] both for the last month and I joked to my friend that I hope I don’t send Maker’s Mark [bourbon] to Camden’s birthday and streamers to Nick‘s birthday!”

What started out as family fun on Father’s Day turned into a chance to rekindle the romance for Nick and Vanessa Lachey.

When the 98 Degrees tour bus pulled into Brooklyn for a concert, Vanessa put together a special celebration to highlight all things close to her husband’s heart. And the balance couldn’t have been any better.

“That morning I surprised him with a boat ride around Manhattan, and we just had lunch on the boat. It was me, him and [Camden],” Vanessa, 32, tells PARADE.

“He did the show that evening, and then that night we had a date night. Honestly, without sounding super cheesy, it was kind of the perfect mix — just being well-rounded and having work — his love — and his family — his other love — and then having ‘us’ time.”

Nick Lachey ‘Broke Down and Cried Like a Sobbing Child’ at Camden’s Birth

Fatherhood was always something Nick Lachey dreamed of but it wasn’t until eight months ago, when he and wife Vanessa welcomed their son Camden John, that he could have ever envisioned such peace.

“It’s been a long time since I’ve felt this calm,” the singer, 39, tells PEOPLE. Despite juggling hosting duties for two NBC shows, a new album with 98 Degrees, his solo album, A Father’s Lullaby, and a summer tour on the road with New Kids on the Block and Boyz II Men, the first time father is cherishing every second with his family of three.

“I had a lot of expectations for what fatherhood would be because I thought about it for so long but when it happens, it blows your mind every day,” he says. “This little creature that you created, that looks to you and depends on you, and just brings you so much joy, you just can’t put it into any kind of words. Your kids are the biggest blessing you could ever possibly have in life.”

Nick Lachey has always been good at finding all the right words to say (er, sing!), but the new dad still can’t get over the first time he laid eyes on his baby boy, Camden John.

“I was [in the delivery room]. It was surreal, but one of the coolest things to ever see in your life,” the singer and TV host tells Fox News.

“You’re there with the woman you love, she’s giving birth to your child. It’s a pretty magical thing.”

Completely head over heels with his 7-month-old, Nick — who shares Camden that is “into the belly laugh stage” — is basking in baby bliss, but promises not to push his own success on his son.
