If anything was going to get me out of this no blogging business it had to be big!
Tonight while eating, Alex got fussy, which can mean a few things: he is going to throw up, he is done in his chair, he is hungry, or he wants his book. Usually it is that he wants his book.
Before he gets his book, I sign book, and ask him if he wants his book.Usually he laughs, squeals, and stiffens telling me YES! That is exactly what I want!
Tonight I said what do you want, and he signed book!
I made him do it twice just to be sure, you know, cause sometimes I do that "he has a syndrome surely he didn't do that, thing" (don't worry I don't do that much),
His very first sign!
His very first step in expressing himself through communication!
Of course he knows lots of signs, he knows more, eat, cracker, bird, baby, bath, and then some, but wont sign them.
Motivation is what FINALLY got him to do it. Is there anything better to be motivated by? Here he is right after getting his book......................
