Communication

I have photos of pumpkin carving, cookie decorating & cute kids dressed as a hockey player, princess & frog. But, I really don't feel like posting them for no other reason than it feels a bit redundant at this point in time.

So instead I'm going to make like a mommy blogger and brag about my baby. Really, I don't know if it's bragging or not. I'm just excited & feel like sharing. Kaia is finally starting to use baby signs. This morning when I got her out of bed the first thing she did was make the sign for eat. Just a few minutes ago I was in the kitchen thinking I'd unload the dishwasher & then put her to bed. Just as I was getting started Kaia crawled over to me, sat up & made the sign for milk!! Yesterday she would have crawled over to me & started crying. I'd have picked her up & figured out that she wanted to have milk & bed, but this was so much better. No crying & by making that sign I knew for sure what was going on inside that little brain. My baby is growing up!

This signing stuff sounds kinda neat you can yell at ur kids during mtg & no one can hear! I've watched Wendy sign at her kids and there was no smile on her face, tho I have no idea what she was signing.

That's awesome...we don't use signs, but Archer picked up eat and more from my niece who's one month older, and it is pretty cool to see them sign. I've been using signs more now just because it's so fun to see them learn like that.

you're making me feel bad over here - with Jacob we worked quite a bit on signing blah, blah, blah...with Lia - she knows "more" and that's it. Humph. Guess I have no one to blame except myself. I'm really proud of you for keeping it up with 3 kids! You go Mom! And I know what you mean about the Halloween pics - we have some too but it just kind of seems redundant. I'd love to see your though. ;)
