That's brilliantgrin
Ww have been using sign with our ds 10 for about 18-20 mionths now and he is surprising us all the time with new signs. We have also noticed that the more he signs the more he seems to understand us when we verbally ask him to do things.
Well done.

Fantastic news, well done to both of you

That's fantastic - really creative! Can I add one? I asked DS2 where the remote control was yesterday and he POINTED (properly, with his index finger) up to the top of the TV (where we keep it from time to time to stop him from constantly fast forwarding). I was so excited!

Phoenix - absolutely deserved proud mummy moment, totally get you on this one, (as i hope we are heading that way next) YAYYY !!! I physically got excited for you just reading it!!! A 2 word sentence !!! Well done your DS, and well done you!!! FABULOUS, FANTASTIC, BRILLIANT!!!

Sphil - YAYYY!!! that is wonderful news! Properly formed an everything (I understand your excitement at that too, we used to have a 'thumb' point, but lost it sad) but YAYYY!!! love these threads!!! XXX

and yet another wonderful grin for little sphil.

Well done to little phoenix and little sphil. Phoenix - impressive - as that's a multi-part sequence with reasoning LOL. So quite a lot of thought behind that!

btw re:MacDonalds - it was the first place DS could say "I want to go to X". So yes, I was so chuffed he could do that that we did end up going there rather a lot blush

An update. Put the remote control on top of the TV again and when DS2 asked for a video the conversation went like this:
Me: Where's the remote control?
DS2: Control control
Me: Yes, remote control - where is it?
DS2: Whereisit?
Me: DS2, can you point to the remote control
DS2: Point, point (pointing wildly everywhere BUT the top of the TV)

So my proud mummy moment may have been a one off grin.

DS did that kind of thing to me all the time. It was so annoying.
DH would come home and I would be jumping on one foot telling him DS's wonderful new achievement, but then no performance!!
The good thing sphil is that he can do it! and will do it again for sure.
