Signing New Words

On Wednesday we were at the mall waiting to teach Shop n’ Stroll class. Elijah was asking me questions “what is that”, “who is that” and then “what is this?” while pointing to his buckle. I said and signed to him that is a “RED” buckle. Elijah signed “BREAD” and looked at me and appeared very confused. I signed that “BREAD” is “FOOD” and “RED” is a “COLOUR”. He then shook his head and signed “EAT” “BREAD” and pointed at the buckle as signed “RED” for the first time. I love love being able to communicate with my 16 month old and truly see the world though his eyes!
