I felt the need for a slightly happier, less serious post up here. Hence a post about my sweet boy.
He is also getting more and more communicative. I have been trying to teach him the sign for "all done" that involves just raising his hands. Instead, he will very vigorously flap his arms for all he's worth to tell me he's finished. I have also been using the traditional sign for "more", but he has adapted this as well. Instead of putting his hands together, he will shove the back of his hand into his mouth. Which, when you think about it, is actually more logical. As in "I want to put more stuff in here, ma, so give me that banana."
He also is getting good at giving hugs. He loves to hug onto my legs when I'm working in the kitchen. His current favorite game, which has replaced "door," is one we call "Lucy." This game involves an unwitting dog who just walks being all dog like which Judah takes for her playing with him. He'll laugh hysterically then try to hide in my neck. Then look at the dog as she walks by again and do it all over. It's wonderful.
