Anne Sullivan, I got your number.
We've been working on simple sign language with Erin. For the last few weeks she's been using her own version of "more" and "all done," very useful during mealtimes. Last night she was saying "da-da-da-da". We enthusiastically both said "Yes, Dad," pointing to Brian and making the sign. Her face lit up with understanding and she enthusiastically put her hand to her forehead. Tonight Steve the Cat wandered by and I named him "Cat, see the cat?" while doing the sign. With a huge smile she swiped her hand from mouth to ear, several times, looking right at Steve. I am half elated, half intimidated by how quickly she learns.
