For posterity

I want to be able to look back at this blog and see Jack's developments as he grows. With that in mind, I thought I should sit down and make a list of signs and words he knows.

We have him in a very exclusive American Sign Language immersion program (aka, my aunt & uncle's house), and it's totally worth the cost! Hee hee.

Yep, Jack is one smart cookie! He amazes me daily!

I would add to his sign list:

and to his words list:

A, B...(meant in ABC song...but, he sometimes uses it to mean??)

Plus...there's a bunch of things he understands but doesn't yet say himself!

For example, "Jack, if you're hungry, go to your highchair"!

Connie said...

...also, Jack signs "bath" when he says it!

Connie said...

...oops! just thought of another one!

He signs & says "HOT" now.

Ohhh, thanks for the updates Connie, and for your diligent private tutoring!

I didn't know about owl. Is that from Mr. Owl, his naptime and fort friend?
