Cheers!

Anna has learned a new sign...and a new trick!

Anna can now make a sign for "drink". Ok -- it is not the correct sign, but she, and we know what it means, and therefore we can communicate!

Anna has also finally gotten the hang of drinking out of her cup by herself. Now that she knows how to do it, it is one of her favorite pasttimes. Perhaps that is why she quickly learned the sign for drink -- so she can ask for her drink over and over and over again.

So - raise your glasses with Anna and take a drink! =)
Cheers!


In addition to being able to sign "drink" (or at least make a gesture that we all recognize as meaning drink), Anna has mastered "more" and "all done" (her versions of them anyway). I am really excited to see her starting to understand language and communication. I was starting to get frustrated because she just wasn't getting it, and I so desperately want her to be able to communicate her wants and needs to us and others.

But, we are now on our way! I have ordered the Baby Signing Time DVD's and look forward to watching Anna learn more new "words"!
