I have been trying to teach Kate some basic signs for several months. When Reilly was at Small Adventures day care he learned a few words which it seemed he used and was less fussy because he had a way to communicate. Makes sense, I think – communicating is key- and at this age, it’s just grunts.
Today Kate signed “more” when she wanted more food. She is just so proud of herself. She signs “more” and then she claps if she gets what she wants. It’s kind of like Pavlov’s dog… but different.
