I need to borrow some equipment from James Bond. I think a spy camera attached to my glasses or on a necklace would be helpful because it takes a huge amount of effort and coordination to catch memories on video.
All of my boys have used some sort of sign language in the early years. I don't go nuts - they only use the basics to communicate simple needs and use manners before they have the words to say them. I usually teach please, thank you, more, and all done.
Squirt has just learned (or decided to show us after months of training) "please" and it is stinkin adorable. He looks like a baseball coach trying to direct the next pitch.
I just love this boy! He is noisy and stubborn and hungry all the time, and did I mention noisy? But he has his mommy's heart right in the palm of his hand and I am SO grateful to be the one home to see these sweet memories.
