Aaron learned the sign for Thank You!

Aaron is fourteen months old today and his communication is growing by leaps and bounds. He learns signs much quicker and he uses them appropriately more and more. It is just an amazing thing to watch! He hasn't added any more verbal words, but he is talking all the time - we just don't usually know what he's saying! And he has learned to 'blow on hot food'. It is one of the funniest things ever. Next time you see Aaron, I implore you to say, "Aaron, how do you blow on your food?"

Physically he is so active. He can walk up stairs now if there is a banister with rails he can grasp. If there is just a wall he still crawls up. He loves to color and he loves, loves dirt. He begs to go outside as soon as he wakes up. He loves his sand box and can stay entertained for a long time in there. He is a great eater. I am seeing more and more of my friends struggling with picky eaters, but Aaron will still eat almost anything. He just got another tooth and is up to seven. He is a great sleeper. He sleeps 12 hours at night and he takes two naps during the day totaling about 2 1/2 hours. He is almost always happy. He loves to dance. He loves his Daddy the mostest. And he's got a smile that will light up your world. I promise.

You loved to color and your brother loved dirt. I think the combination of the two in Aaron will provide you with many sane moments!:)
Wow! He's "moving right along!"

I love your house---didn't get a chance to comment on your other entry. The pie looks fantastic----Grandma Shirley's beaming!
And-I esp. love the pic of Aaron on the box where he's so serious and so engrossed in his coloring.
Great pics and posts!

What a great accomplishment. I need to work on the Wee Ones with sign language. Are you using any resources to teach him or are you just doing it yourself? BTW..your new Casa is GORGEOUS! Cannot wait to see the inside!
