Charlie has begun to sign 'Dad' and 'Mom.' He can also say 'dad,' but 'mom' comes out more like "Bup." It is very exciting. He is now up to 17 signs, and 6 words he can say.
Here's the list of signs:
Hat, Ball, Bear, Car, Eat, More, All Done, Shoes, Sleep/Sleepy, Bath, Dad, Mom, Dog, Shoes, Socks, Book, Play
Here are the words he can say:
Hat, Ball (Bau), Dada, Bubbles (Bubbu), Bath (Bas), Book (Budabudabuda)
He is so excited about learning new signs. And he often tries out new words. One thing is for sure, the kid has a lot to say. When he is playing by himself I hear a running 'commentary' of all he is doing. It goes something like this:
"Uh!....Weoweoweo...Ah!....We!....Ohhhhhh....Dadadadada!...Ch!...Muayda.....hmf!....Ba!..." And so on.
What a sweet and clever boy he is!
