Pictures and "more"

Since Britton isn't talking much, we were told we should start signing with him.  Granted, we should have started this a long time ago, but better late than never, right?

We started with the sign for "more".  We would not give him what he wanted when he pointed or grunted until he either said the name of the item (which we would say over and over), say "more" or signed "more.  There were tears at first, but he finally got the idea. 

Now, when he is done, and you ask him if he wants more, he shakes his head no.  But if he wants "more", you don't even have to ask him, he immediately makes the sign.  WOW!  Why did we not do this sooner?!?! He does this for going down the slide, eating, drinking, and snacks.

So we will be teaching more signs and also stressing using words as well.

Here are some pics from the last week:

 He's sooooooo cool!  Notice the crossed fingers, this is a fairly new thing he does.  I have no idea where he learned it.

Love this outfit!

He makes this "surprised" face all.the.time.

He is too cute! It's amazing how fast they can learn signs.
