    Default things are starting to click...

    Hooray... bit of bragging here
    My 13 month old has been showing that she understands many many signs (receptively), but she's been "stuck" on signing just a few things expressively.
    We're in Chicago visiting family, and it seems that she has a new one every day
    She's doing MORE, FINISHED, MILK, DADDY, FISH (for goldfish), a variation of CRACKER, BED, WATER/DRINK, WANT/GIVE-ME, HAT, STINKY (for a dirty diaper)...

    Exciting for us... more to come I'm sure
    Thanks for listening.

    Anyone else care to brag about their little one here?

    Jen,

    That is so exciting!! I wish my little one signed a few more things, but since he is not in a home that signs fulltime, I guess I will be happy with any signing that he does.

    Now she can do CHEESE, too!

    The funny thing is, she recognizes soo much!! She could be in a full cry, and I'll sign "wanna eat?", and she instantly stops crying and signs MORE (as in, "yes, mom, I certainly do want to eat!!") haha... I don't know why she doesn't sign EAT yet (we do it constantly), but she will when she's ready...

    It is so much fun watching it all come together... and having the summer to spend with her full time is just awesome (especially in the midst of this language growth).
