We are SO proud of you Alex!! Mommy and Daddy, thank you for sharing this precious video with us.
"I just wanted to share the story of Alex's first sign. He just turned 10 months and he's been imitating things that I do and sounds that I make lately. (Clapping, kissing, coughing, yelling, short words, laughing, and yes, even burping.) I've been asking him if he wants more when I've been feeding him and doing the "more" sign. He started copying me on Tuesday and I made sure to quickly give him more of his food. He finally got it that whenever he did the sign, he would quickly get more food. I wasn't sure at first that that was what he was doing because he doesn't use his fingertips...it looks more like a clap but he does it very purposefully and just does it 2 or 3 times. (It kinda reminds me of somebody trying to use "The Clapper".....ha ha!) He may think that it means he "wants" something because he did it today when I asked him if he wanted his milk. I am very excited that he's wanting to communicate with me and he seems very excited too that I understand him! I'm so looking forward to his next signs....Thanks again to Etel for a great class!
Karen and Alexander ;)
