Enjoy this walking video.
AnnaKate's signing or lack of, has really been a sore spot for me. I majored in education for hearing handicap so you would think that I would have no problem teaching signs to my daughter. WRONG! She has had such a hard time picking up new signs. She can sign more, all done, and yes. I try and try to teach new signs and then get frustrated after working on one sign and having no progress. But on Friday she picked up a new sign with little effort. She will now sign "night-night". Even better it is at the appropriate time. It is so cute the way she cocks her head to pretend she is sleeping. (By the way, my sign for night-night may not be the approved sign but it was one that she could do. Disclaimer for Melissa!)
This morning I made pancakes for her and showed her the sign and she got it immediately. (Again my sign was a simpler version...just pat your hands twice) So maybe I was pushing her to sign before she was ready. This is probably a good lesson for me to learn. I need to not push so hard...it only frustrates me and does not seem to help!
