So I've been teaching Westen sign language and he has taken to it really well! I think it has helped him a lot because he whines a lot less because he knows a better way of communicating now. He has started to say some of the words while signing. It is supposed to help them learn how to talk faster. He knows how to say please, more, drink, thank you, pacifier, all done, and soft.
Some of the words can say now in English are Jesus, its hot, baby, Hayley... and he does this cute chant thing all the time saying "ah ba ja bajaaaaa" so funny. I love this sweet boy.
