Came home Thursday and our new nanny, Miss K, mentioned the teachers at school said G signed “more” during lunch. I was skeptical, and then Miss K said she thinks he did it also when giving him a snack.  Still skeptical….

And then, Daddy P made pancakes Friday morning, and G DID IT! He really signed “more” when I asked him if he was all done or wanted more pancakes! I nearly fell out of my seat. This is huge for two reasons – 1) he is understanding things we are saying, which is a key cognitive and communication skill we weren’t sure he would ever develop, and 2) his fine motor skills are good enough to be able to move his hands that way. It doesn’t take a lot of “skill” for that particular sign, but still, it was awesome.

Today I took him to a puppet show with his big sis, and he started clapping when he realized the crowd was clapping, another reflection of his cognitive skills developing.

It’s been a fun week at the H house!

Our little school boy!

Here are a few pics of G in his first few weeks of school – they take a TON of pics which is really awesome!  Also, G is officially clapping! This is a huge milestone for him, as ACC kids have a really hard time coming to mid-line, they tend to operate their bodies as two separate halves, so for him to bring his hands together is awesome!  I will attribute peer pressure and music therapy to getting him there!

He has been babbling alot this weekend too. Heard a few “mamamamamas” and “nananananananas”, no recognition with it, but I am hopeful he is getting there….
