More words and signs...

Sophie continues to amaze me with the parade of new signs, daily...

She's signing airplane, eat, sleepy, fan, more (and saying "mo, moooor"--so cute)... and of course "sign" which means "turn on signing time so I can learn more signs NOW darnit!" She mimicked "trash" today; she pointed out the trash can and I said "trash" and she repeated the exact sounds! Later we tried "tree" but all she does is TTTTtttttt! She's really trying to say things like that, tho-- altho mostly it's just the initial consonant that makes it out. Book is the sign for book plus "Boa" and water is "waaah." She's also regularly making our elephant sound, altho sometimes she still scampers into our laps when she sees the elephant dolls... it's a love-hate relationship because of the loud noise I think. She's similarly intrigued and scared by the door stopper. Ah, Sophie, so smart and still so much to learn (unless you know something I don't know about door stoppers?).
