Alex did his first signs!!!
This morning he was playing just fine and then started having melt down. Both Jay and I thought me must be tired. Jay tried to get him to sleep, I tried to get him to sleep, and then I put him in his crib. (sometimes when he is really tired, the only way he will go to sleep is to be put in his crib) Nothing was working.
I got him back out of his crib, and was going to start rocking him again. As I sat down in the glider he signed (plain as day!!!) Milk - More - Milk. And his more was perfect!!!
I threw him at Jay (ok - maybe not a throw - but pretty close), ran into the kitchen, and made the quickest bottle ever.
Sure enough - he took the whole bottle, smiled up at me, and went back to playing - as happy as could be.
I'm still amazed that my 9 1/2 month old was able to tell me what he wanted!!!!! I'm SOOOOO happy!!!!!
(oh - and he's now cruising EVERYWHERE - and getting into EVERYTHING!!!)
