Signs, Signs, Everywhere are Signs....

This is what happens when J-man is
left alone with chips

We have had a mini "sign explosion" at our house.

For a year-plus we slaved at the sign "more".

This June, J-man got "More". A few weeks later, "Go".

And now I can say that we have eight signs. EIGHT. Might not seem like a lot to you, but I feel like we are at the start of something wonderful.

Our eight signs are:

Fish (don't ask me why... he likes fish)
Eat (uses only sporadically, but I have seen it!)
Candy (got this one immediately)

I can see a few more emerging, but I am holding off on calling those official. Not all of the signs are textbook, but they are approximations... and consistent. And he is spontaneous with them. And today he even combined two signs together (more fish)...

I am going to the library to rent Signing Time DVD so I can learn more signs to teach him.

I love this.
