Saturday afternoon (frigid weather!) we’re watching Signing Time. Rachel comes on to sing the introduction song. J-man touches the TV screen: “Ahh elll uhvvv yu uuu, Err Aa K-Kul!” (To the uninitiated, that’s “I love you, Rachel!”)
No prompting, no saying every syllable behind him, just straight out.
Also, when Rachel sings a song, J-man will now pull on my arm, and say “yu uuu!” until I sing AND SIGN along. My signing is getting better because I’m doing it more. I sign the word, he says the word, and everything is right with the world.
Now that we have new ones to watch, I’ll have more signs to learn… and the J-man has more words to learn. Both of us are growing.
