Baby Sign

M has only been 22 months for a few days, and literally overnight has started doing an array of new things.  She can unlock my iphone, get to the camera and take pictures and videos with no assistance, as well as find her favorite apps like Talking Gina, Shapes, and Elmo.

I've lost count of her word count because she pretty much repeats everything. She is putting 2 words together consistently now such as "My Cheese" 'Baby Sign" "Mommy No" Sweetie (the kitten) down" and "Sissy School". But her favorite words remain, No, Stop and Mine :) Toddlers...

She also has become more fluent in sign language. We started teaching her the basic signs at around 7-8 month. At around 15-18 months we began expanding on that and I am AMAZED at how much she can sign. She really loves signing, and that's all she wants to watch, is her Baby Signing Time DVD's. And its something I feel comfortable letting her watch as much she wants! It really is like learning a second language, and she has successfully learned both over the last few months. It makes me so happy!

Right now she can sign the following consistently:

-More, Please, Thank You, All Done, Eat, Again, Stop, Play, Yes/ No, Share, Telephone, Music

-Friends, Baby, Sign/Signing, Hot, Cold, Juice, Cup, Dirty, Clean, Feel, Cry, Happy/Sad, Laugh, Bubbles

-Cat, Mouse, Moose, Chicken, and Duck

I'm sure there is more, but that's all I can think of at the moment.  My little lady is so smart!

Such a smart cookie! Trevor started talking really young so we kinda stopped the sign. But, I love it and still have him "show" me what he is saying every once in a while.

Thinking of you a lot this cycle..I want to see good news on this page ASAP!
