Doggie

So, I'm pretty sure (emphasis on pretty), that Dylan has begun showing us his very first sign! I noticed a few nights ago that each time he'd spot one of our dogs, he would pat his tray. Yep, I know the sign for dog is patting your leg, but the times which we most frequently see our dogs are meal times. Naturally, they are always quite close to Dylan when he is eating, as they have learned that when he's is in his chair, food always falls from above.

Here he is tonight. *I am saying the word "doggie" but I am not doing the sign.*



What do you think? I'm tempted to say that he may actually be catching on to signing! Yeah!!!

That is AWESOME Dylan!! I have been signing with children for 25 years and that is how children sign "dog" when they are in their highchair!! Keep up the awesome signing in your house. The more Dylan sees signing, the more he will begin to communicate. Yay Dylan!!

Yay, Dylan! Both my kids would hit their trays if they were trying to sign dogs while eating in the highchairs. Great work!
