Sign Language

I have been doing baby sign language with Cooper since he was 5 months old. He has not attempted any signs up until just this week. I am so excited that he is starting to communicate with me, even if it just a sign.

He is signing “all done” at meal time now! He has his own twist or variation on the sign, but he is doing it. This makes meal time less stressful because he just tells me he is done and does not have to scream to get out of his high chair.

He is also waving and pointing, but they are really not signs. However, all this gesturing is just another attempt by Cooper to communicate with me.

Now, I am just waiting for him to pick up on more signs and perhaps a few words.
