Sign language has begun

Emily is using her own version of at least 4 signs now. They are all one handed signs as she still has trouble bringing both hands together. She showed me “eat” yesterday and this morning she signed “milk”. These are in addition to “want” and “bye bye” that she already had. Our pediatrician said that signs count as language so we have ourselves an official communicator. This takes a huge weight off my mind as far as the question of whether Emily will ever talk. She understands and now uses language. Huge.

One thought on “Sign language has begun

  1. I just read this to Mo and managed to get all the way to the end before the tears of happiness started flowing from my eyes.  Blot, blot.

    Love you, Dad
