"More!"

I went to a baby sign class back in January, and I'd been sort of inconsistently trying to do a few signs with Kate. Then when she started copying my "The crocodile goes snap! snap!" when reading one of her little board books, I figured she would be able to learn some. We've been doing "more" and "milk," and I think she's got "change" figured out too.

Today we all went down to Olympia so Doug could drop off a job application at South Puget Sound Community College. After a brief visit to campus we went to a couple of parks. While I was taking pictures of some crocuses (ah, Spring!) Kate was having fun stomping on metal plates in the ground. One of them was a little bit loose, and Doug was jiggling it with his foot. Kate complained when he stopped. He said, "You want some more?" and she signed "more!" (She doesn't do it quite right, but we know what she means!)

Okay, now that's darling. My boys learned baby sign, too. I doubt they remember anything now. Sadly, they've replaced some of their favorite gestures with teenage guy ones. :(

Still the cutest, and now the smartest, little girl around!

We called more "Fulfil my every desire" as that is how it got used.

There are crocuses everywhere here this year - aren't they gorgeous. Good luck to Doug!

Yay, baby signs! Jaylene learned some, but as her care giver at the time, my MIL, refused to learn any of them, we didn't do too many. It's really a great way for the kiddos to communicate and relieves so many frustrations!

Kate is so cute!

Baby signing made my life MUCH easier with the twins, that's for sure! As usual, Kate is precious!

She is so cute and it's been amazing to watch her grow up. I remember when she was just an infant. Time sure does fly. And I must say that she looks so much like Doug in the picture. OH, and a friend of mine did sign language with her little one at that age and what a life saver!
