More Please!!!!

Today the boys speech therapist came. They are learning sign language. I am learning along while teaching them. The general concept is for them to learn to say the word as they sign it. Monkey almost refuses to sign at all and Tiger picks everything up by the second time. I want this for them so they can tell me their needs and wants. They have no hearing impairments known at this time.

So far they are signing: More, More please, please, thank you, open, finshed/all done and love. They are doing well with it. I do want to see more please, if you know what I mean! It is so helpful to know what they need!

Not much going on around here today. I have some new post topics swirling around in my head. I have found pretty rottten today. I started with a sinus headache, sore throat, stuffiness and so on so forth. The cardiologist called some antibiotics in along with something for the drainage and congestion. I really have to stay on top of it when I start showing signs of getting sick. I had open heart surgery at the ripe ole age of 19. Let's see.................that was 12 years now. Hope to feel better soon!

Hope your Friday is going well and you have a blessed weekend!

Hi Marva! Good for the boys! Hope it continues to go well ;) I hope you feel better soon. I've had a cold for a week now...started off with a sore throat and then moved in to stuffy nose, cough, and runny nose. Yikes....I'm ready to be better now :) Ellie

I hope that you get well soon! Big hugs to you, and I hope that you have a great weekend too :)

I hope the antibiotics kick in soon so you will feel better and get better.

I wish I had had my little girl taught sign language. She's 19 months old and still not talking much. Let me re-phrase that: she talks a lot, but it's in her own language. She does have a few words (her favorite is shoes; I think I may have a problem in a few years! lol). She knows what she is saying; the problem is no one else does. Ugh!

I hope that you feel better soon. It sounds like your boys are thriving.Great job boys!

Marva said...

Ellie, Praying for a speedy recovery for you too!

Thanks Nico!

Me too Nikki! No time to be sick around here!

The boys were speaking several words by age 6 months and then aboout 12 months it was like they had lost them. They both spoke their first words by 4 1/2 months. Our peditrician could not believe it and then he heard it. Monkey said goody and Monkey said love you.

They have their own way of communication and lots of babble. They now are speaking about 12 a piece. They are 21 months.

AHHHHHHHH! Shoes! I love shoes! It'll be fine, no problems, enjoy that sweet blessing! They just grow up way too fast!

Mimi, Hope I feel better soon and I am so proud of them.
