Ian & a sign-language update......

It's been a few months since I updated on Ian and his communication skills.  Ian will be 18 months old in 9 days!  Wow~ he's growing up so fast.  He is still not saying anything but "uh-oh".  He's definitely a man of few words, but he knows how to get his point across. 
He is now signing "more", "eat", "drink" (but he has his own sign for this, which is more a click of the tongue than an actual sign), "diaper", "Daddy","Mommy", "ball", "milk", "blanket" and "bath".  Let me tell you~ it's so darn cute to see him doing his signs! 
Somedays we get frustrated and wish he could just TELL us what he wants in words, but I'm sure that will come soon enough.  For now, I'm not really worried.  He understands EVERYTHING we say.  Sometimes he even surprises us with the things he understands~ things we're just discussing, not directly with him~ and he will bring us something that relates to the discussion.
Anyway, he's certainly alot of fun!
