I've always been interested in sign language and knew I wanted to teach my kiddo how to sign. I started early with Decs and for months and months had zero luck. One day, he started picking up on it. I really credit signing to helping us communicate with a toddler that had lots to say and no words. Now, he signs and speaks. It's adorable.
"All Done" (though clearly not done evidenced by the apple in hand and mouth)
He also uses "drink", "thank you", "milk" and "cracker". I'm trying to teach him "help" and some potty signals. If you haven't thought of signing or are frustrated with trying, I encourage you to keep on it. It's been really rewarding to be able to communicate, especially before he talked.
Side note- it was 65 degrees today. Pure bliss. Tomorrow? Snow and 30s. Boooo.
