I have been working with Luke for about a month now trying to get him to learn some baby signs.
The best one we have working for us right now is the sign for drink. He know what it means when I sign it and gets excited and a few times he's even pointed to my mouth to indicate he wants a drink--so we're making progress I guess. I am also trying to teach him "up" and "down" and "all done" but without too much success and still plenty of whining. It will probably take some time to get him to start communicating better with us because he gets so focused on his motor skills--like walking--that he ignores everything else he already learned (like clapping) and just wants to get up and walk. (which he is doing allllll the time now. He walks everywhere and is pretty darn good too. He falls on his bum a lot but he can actually walk a long time and long distances before falling usually)
Anyway--baby signs are awesome and I want to do more!!
I read a blog called Petit Elephant and she is giving away 5 copies of a pop-up Baby Signs book--check it out here! I would love to win it!
