Speaking Jackson's Language

Jackson's vocab is growing each day, both in spoken and in sign language. Here are some of his words/sounds:

dog= dog
dat= duck
dat= if not looking at a duck, anything else- haha
baff= bath
dad= dad
mama= mama

puts both hands in the air, above his head= "all done", in sign language
makes the shape of a circle with his hands= "ball", in sign language
hits tips of fingers together (sort of looks like he's clapping)= "more", in sign language

This all just started happing over the past few weeks and it's been so fun. I can't wait to see what he comes up with next. He also makes some serious eye contact when he blabs, so I know he's trying to talk to us.

funny, Ryan's "more" sign looks like clapping too! also, "milk" looks like bye bye. interpreter definitely needed. i'll agree though, it has been SO much fun "communicating"!
