Ryan Signs!

Ryan learned to sign last week. His first sign was "more." He is very pleased with the power that this one little sign gives him. He looks down, notices his tray is empty, puts his fingertips together, and grins from ear to ear when we give him "more" food! He later signed "milk" this week as well. He does not grin when he signs milk. He throws his entire body backwards into his favorite nursing position, begins to whimper, and waves his fists in the air opening and closing his hands to sign "milk." Anyone unfamiliar with sign language would think he was throwing a tantrum, but the fist thing just began this week and he will copy me when he isn't hungry. I am hoping to get him to just sign milk without the dramatics soon when he wants to nurse.
