Sign Language Update (10-3-13)


So I have more to add!  It's so exciting!  The ones highlighted in grey are ones that have been included in the previous two posts about his sign language:

  • milk
  • more
  • food/ eat
  • bug
  • horse
  • dog (he also woofs!)
  • dada (for sure, also uses it for grandparents of both sexes)
  • cow (all the time! his general sign for animals)
  • apple
  • cracker
  • thank you (when showed how)
  • baby 
He's been reluctant to sign "milk" as he has been in the past for some reason, but will consistently sign "more" when he wants to nurse.  I don't know what it is about the sign, maybe some strange association with it.  He'll do it when prompted, though it's not as clear as it was months ago.  Instead of all his fingers closing at once, he alternates closing them.  And also strange, he'll sign it to other people that are around and not to me, as if telling them he's going to have milk.  Just strange!
One adorable thing he's been doing is when he's falling asleep nursing he slowly signs "dada."  Maybe he's trying to call him or maybe just associates "dada" with falling asleep.  It is so cute!

We're now working on "grandpa" as he's obsessed with my dad these days.  He'll stare at a Christmas card on the fridge and sign "dada" over and over.  We're now working on:
  • thank you
  • light 
  • water
  • mama
