As I said last week, I've started signing help
when I offer to help Sasha. However, I also happened to start signing for cracker
. Well she took off with that one! She signs for cracker and walks to the kitchen. She loves her organic Sesame Street crackers
Last night at my Dad's, I mentioned her signing. Dad asked if I was trying to raise her to be a mute. Ugh. I said no and left it at that. Not much point in arguing. My mom, on the other hand, was impressed today and even gave us some different kind of crackers that Sasha likes.
has been coming up more often than help
. I need to work on that. And maybe choose another word to throw into the mix. She is consistently signing for milk when she wants it. Though she rarely signs on her own chest, she signs on mine. I try to give her whatever it is she is requesting with signs to reinforce that I understand her. And I always say the word with the sign.
Oh, I've started signing water
more consistently lately, too.
As an aside... Sasha managed her way all the way up the stairs at Dad's place! I just followed closely behind, I didn't help at all! She needed lots of help back down, but she enjoyed going up them. Then we came home and she promptly climbed onto the couch with no pillow for a boost! Greaaat. More baby-proofing to do.
