Gus has really started using the signs in the past week or so.
He uses ‘all done’ regularly -without first hitting spoons away or blowing raspberries with his rice cereal.
And asks for ‘food’ without whining now. He simply does the sign and calmly waits for us to fix him something.
He’s even making up a few of his own. Like when he hides a toy then puts his arms up high and almost shrugs as if to say ‘who knows?’ Or when he points to his palm. No clue what that means.
It’s very cool. It feels like we’re talking and there’s much less frustration with him. Oh and we may be close to weaning as well because tonight when he was about to breastfeed, he pulled my sweater back down and signaled for food. Clear as day.
