What to muse about today?

What Are Words For? Ashlin’s Turn

Now it’s Ashlin’s turn.

Signs:

                    1. Jump – she will start jumping up and down when you do the sign
                    2. Diaper – she will smile and stop kicking on the changing table
                    3. More – she claps instead of doing the more sign (Update 4/22 – she’s now doing a double fist thing instead of clapping, Update 5/1 – she now does one finger pointing into the palm, like Teagan did!)
                    4. All Done!
                    5. Milk (though she’s not consistent on this)

I’m not sure if I’ll be updating this much any more, Ashlin is picking up words every day, and has been making three word sentences for at least a week or so now.  Her pronunciation is not wonderful, she sounds like she has a mouthful of marbles, but she’s very consistent with her sounds, and very insistent in her wordings.  Such a big girl.
