This isn't the best video because you cant see my hands which is an important part of the video, and there is a certain 7 year old in the background trying to distract you away from the action. So you may have to watch it twice to watch Noah in the background, then focus on Alex. So, here is what is going on. I ask Alex if he wants to play peek-a-boo, he then looks down to get one of my hands, then turns and gets my other hand, then lifts my hands to put them over my face so we can play peek-a-boo.
Why is this exciting??? Alex has no words, but I know he understands much of what we say to him like want to go bye bye, lets read a book, take a bath, take a bite, and do you want to play peek a boo. When your child cannot tell you what they want, it is so encouraging to see evidence that they can and will communicate with you. So enjoy, and dont forget to pause the music at the bottom of the blog!
