The more sign made a reappearance last thursday during EI! We had it months ago and then for some reason it seemed to disappear and little to no signing has continued other than the basics of up-up. Monique thought most likely it has to do with the movement towards crawling. She said children tend to get quieter and even appear to regress when they are working on major motor milestones. She said she has known many speech therapists who won’t work with children until they are walking because of the expectation that children won’t talk much until after they have mastered walking. Well, during EI Jodie was ticklin the belly of the baby and she was giggling out loud. When Jodie stopped the Quail’s eye’s trained on her in anticipation of more. When Jodie asked if she wanted more, sure enough the little fingers came together at midline, again and again and again. So very sweet. There were also a number of standing up, leaning in goopy, open-mouthed kisses after multiple requests to “Give Momma a Kiss”. It’s my favorite therapy to practice. And don’t get me wrong- that therapy is all mine!
