He signed bath and dog




More clips to follow.

Other huge leaps this week.

"Reuben, where's mama's nose?" Reuben points to my nose.
"Reuben, where's mama's mouth?" Reuben points to my mouth.
"Reuben, where's your socks, socks, socks, silly socks?" Reuben curls his toes up and shows me his socks.

The signs for body parts are, just those, body parts, so whilst I'll have to teach him where those body parts are on him, in a little sense, he's signing nose, mouth and eyes.

I remember Eva mum's comments. What we need to work on is the association and I'd say, "bath" is his strongest contextural sign. He knows when he gets into his bath, it's time to sign "bath, bath, bath", just as furiously as his mama and daddy are doing at him!
