Thank you for sharing! So amazingly sweet. You made my day. I had forgotten the instant switch. Cranky one second and overly excited the next. All over delicious breast milk:)
Nothing melted my heart quite like my baby (then toddler) coming up to me and tapping my chest (wherever there was exposed skin, so up closer to my neck) and asking sweetly, "Nur?" She was always so cutely polite about it :-)
Too cute. Thanks for posting :)
Adorable - what a brilliant little man you have! My daughter never gets signing...I wish she would have. We gave up, because she's just not the mimicking kind of baby :(
Dio's sign for nursing looks almost exactly like the sign my daughter & I made up for water to drink, which she also uses now everytime she sees water in any context. For nursing I was teaching her to tap her chest, but really--she just grabs my chest and says "beep! bee!" until she gets what she wants. I had the same problem you did with the sign for "milk"--I'm not a cow, thanks.He sure looks sweet, thanks for sharing.
It is adorable that he looks back at his hand like, "Yep, that was my hand and I did sign. Neat. Now give me that boobie!"
Wow. I started signing with my third, at birth. Just a couple signs at first, milk (the 'traditional' one) and more as these are based on early hand gestures anyway. My daughter didn't respond AT ALL until 13 months when she saw a room full of dogs like our own, and she signed "more" (I had mostly used it for food up till then!).She has turned out to be very delayed for both speech and language :( Signing was a great help, once she caught on to the idea!
