He is full force with the sign language right now. Whatever I show him he picks up within a day or two.
At eating time, he signs when he is "all done" by clapping his hands and bringing them outward like he is swooshing his plate away. And I know he knows what it means because when I offer more food (if I am spoon feeding him) he refuses.
Talking about boo boo's when he hurts himself, he cries and points to where it hurts. As sad as it is that he hurts himself on a regular basis, I think it's so cute that he points ;) It definitely helps me out to know where he hurt himself so I can make it better! We are lucky though, because he only cries for about 15 - 20 seconds and then he is ready to move on. I couldn't even tell you when he was upset for more than that long on any account.
We have adopted an "Elf on the Shelf". Her name is Claudine and she will officially be joining us on December 1st. of course Ethan is too young to understand what she is about, but I'm sure he will have fun "spotting" her on a daily basis until Christmas :) (Really, I am more excited about it than he probably ever will be! But it will be fun and it will be a cute tradition for us to start!) If you are interested in Elf on the Shelf, you can click HERE and read all about it!
His birthday party is in less than two weeks, and I think it's all pretty much organized. We will be having a few photoshoots next week with him - His Cake Smash, 1 year photos (done on the same day) and then his Christmas photoshoot as well. I'm pretty excited for them.
