How things change

So for about, oh I don't know, 4 months, Jack has been signing "more". Then he got "drink". Then "please". Then nothing, for a few months.

Well, the other day, we walked into the Dr's office, and he just started signing "fish"!!(he was heading toward the fish tank) It was so cute! Then during therapy, he signed "baby", when he saw the doll, without being prompted. We were so excited!! His teacher, and I ... screamed!! Fortunately, he did it again. :) The other day, he also signed, "more please", and "All Done"!!! So cool!!!

Then today, we were looking at picture books with animals. And after I showed him the sign...he did..."ELEPHANT", "PIG", "BIRD", and "HORSE"!!! SO COOL!!!

He's also knows what a cat, cow, and dog say!

Seriously...how cool is THAT?!?!?!?!

Another couple of cool things he does... When I get his bottle, (yes he still has a bottle- to go to sleep) He runs over to the chair we always sit in, climbs up and waits for me! :) He's also, nodding and shaking his head appropriately! It's so cute!! And he knows he's funny, but I'm sure I've mentioned that before! ;)

From this...



To this!!


He's getting SO big, SO fast...I hate it! But what a sweet little boy he is. I miss my little baby, but I like this Jack too!!

Isn't it great, to see them grow, and out do what is on paper?

It's been an amazing ride, and I'm so excited that he is signing.

I have two, very beautiful words for you. SIGNING TIME.

Seriously-

*grin*

Wow, that is so amazing. It's great to see what happens once everything starts "clicking" it is so rewarding!

That is so awesome! I can't fathom how exciting it is to have your little guy be able to communicate with you like that! If you're interested in signing time my friend (who's also an ASL interpreter) posted on her blog about a coupon for signing times...

He is such a cutie! You're such a good mama! Looking at that picture of him in the hospital...wow...he was so little...and hooked up to all those monitors...then to see him now! He's a miracle for sure!

He's getting so big! I wish I could've been at the office to see him signing fish! That is so cool that he's doing all of those signs... what a smart boy! And what a great mom you are! Hope you had a great Thanksgiving! :)
