I (Jen) and my husband (Stephen) have a very charmed life. Our son (David) is such a blessing to us! We love spending time with our friends and family and each other!


Baby Signs, Take Two

Back on the baby signing front… he still refuses to do the sign for “more” – which I *thought* was going to be an easy sign, because if there’s anything this kid loves it’s MORE food. At least we’re not banging on the tray any more. He either growls (a new thing that mommy is NOT supporting) which I take to mean “gimme more now, Woman!” or he opens and closes his fists which I am taking to mean “want” (it does sort of look like the sign for “want”). So I sign, “you want more please?” and he grins. Hm, we’ll see how long it takes before he breaks me. Hehe.


  1. Landon is very similar to David in this area. Sometimes he'll clap for "more" and other times he'll wave both hands. He's also been in a growling stage, and seemed to teach himself, "want" by opening and closing his hands. Weird. Maybe our boys are just smarter than us. :-) Keep trying with the signs; he'll get it!

  2. Both of my kids growl...what's up with that? :) They even growl at each they are speaking some language I just don't understand. One day they will be civilized humans, I just know it. ;)
