Awhile ago, I posted that he is making a few signs and saying "mmmoohh". We weren't sure at first, but now there's no mistake, Quinn is talking! He is still saying "Mmmoohh" (more) and yesterday said "Ah Duh" (all done). Woohoo!
Since sign language and speech are emerging, we're ditching the PECS for the time being. We were bad and lazy about using the cards anyway. When our kid is crying for milk, it is hard to crawl around on the floor looking for the slimy milk card he adorned with drool and snot and then threw during the last meal.
This is a wonderful Christmas gift for us. It's been a long time coming for both the signs and the speech. Like many good yuppie parents, we started doing a few signs half-heartedly from the time he was a few months old, and have been doing them (especially "more") pretty intensively for the last 9 months at every opportunity (more tickling, more bubbles, more reading, more singing, more food). It didn't look like it was sticking. I'll admit, I was getting discouraged. But clearly Quinn was just waiting for the right occasion to share his newfound ability!
Drifting away from God - Our family is out of town on about 26-30 Sundays out of the year for our choice of work. Because of this we are privileged to attend other church service...
