Anya is signing!

Anya is signing!  I think she’s actually been doing it for a week or possibly more, but we weren’t sure until a day or two ago.  She signs “milk” and waves bye-bye.  When she signs milk, she often uses 2 hands – it’s like she doesn’t just want milk, she WANTS it :)  She’s not signing it 100% consistently yet and sometimes she’ll sign it just to indicate she wants something, not necessarily milk, but she’s definitely doing it.  This morning when she woke up and I began changing her diaper, she immediately started signing it to me.  I’m hoping to catch her on video this week.

I think she also started playing her own version of peek-a-boo with me.  She sits on my lap and buries her face in my chest, and I say “Where’s Anya?” and then she pops up with a big smile and giggle.  She’ll do it over and over again.  I’m not sure if it’s intentional or not, but Grandma Esther thinks it is.  Either way, it’s a lot of fun.

    Oh, what a delightfully bright little girl she is! And maybe that Saturday experience was the prelude to a cold. However, the normal CBC with normal WBC and normal lymphocytes means that the cold virus–if it is a cold–was just getting started and her immune system didn’t even detect it b/c it was so minuscule…tho not minuscule enought to cause tummy upset. All’s well that stays down well.
