Have you taught your baby any signs? Porter signed "milk" today several times! I would see him looking down at his hand and he would be doing it. I would ask him if he wanted milk and he would get all excited. That's the only one I really have tried to teach him. I've tried to sign it whenever I nurse him since he was just a few months old. I realized the other day that it looks similar to "bye bye", but he even turns his hand sideways when he waves and up and down for milk. So, maybe he isn't confused by it?

Peyton signs 'all done'...she was signing 'more' but then stopped and just yells at me instead...I keep forgetting to sign milk when she nurses. I did a much better job of teaching signs to Connor, I've been slacking with Peyton, but she's also better at communicating than he was, so it was all we had with him!

I haven't tried teaching Arthur any. Out of habit from working with non-verbal kids on the autism spectrum, I will sign "stop" and "all done" but he's not picking up on it yet. He has his own "sign" for more: he'll slap the table in front of him when it's empty.

Porter does that for "more" too. Haha.

Occassionally, I will show her more and all done when I say those words. I should be more consistent. We did it with my first son when he had a language delay. I know it is supposed to help - never really did though.

I need to get back to this. Lily had quite a few basic signs when she was younger. She was super verbal, but used them when she was around lots of people and wanted to be shy. Abri only caught onto "all done." If Henry wants more puffs, he just yells "MAAAAAAAA!!!"
