This is cookie. He did this last night on our way out of Walmart and I had not gotten our free cookie. He was sitting in the cart doing this sign and it took me a moment to figure out he was asking for a cookie. I promptly went back and got one!
Oh, yeah, here is another I forgot to list, this is "fright". He doesn't do the hand motion with it, but the facial expression is priceless!
He just started this one as well the other day. This is tired. It's really cute when he will droop his head for added emphasis.
This one is cry. It is similar to the tired sign, at least when he does it. But you are supposed to drag on finger (on each side) down your cheek, he uses all of his fingers. Maybe he is bawling instead?
There you have it. The funny thing is he will start a sign and then a couple of days later he will say the actual word for the first time. Go figure. He has so far been one of those kids who waits to actually do something only when he knows he will be able to completely do it. Like his walking. We knew he could walk, he had the skills, but he wouldn't. He literally took only three steps one day and the next he was walking over the whole house! He didn't practice like most kids do. Same with crawling. Normally kids will rock back and forth on their hands and knees for a while before they take off. No, he just up and crawled one day. The therapist would have the hardest time trying to get him into a hands and knees position, and he would just cry and cry about it. Then, boom, he does it all on his own and off he went.
Ok, I have to give Jedidiah a bath. He has been asking for one and is eagerly anticipating splashing and pouring water. Have a great night.
