James made his first sign tonight!

We did American Sign Language extensively with Daphne between the ages of one and two, so we're looking forward to using it with James, and watching the kids communicate with each other. It's very exciting when they first sign back to you, because you've been making the signs to them for so long that it seems like it will never click that they're actually supposed to do it too. I guess grapes are good motivation!

So, in the video, it's that little thing that looks like a clap. It's not the real ASL sign for "more," but babies rarely do the signs perfectly. It's close enough for us!

Note: Please excuse the "crazy mommy voice." It's just part of the package, unfortunately. It doesn't turn off.
