On the Move

It’s official, BOTH my kids are making their way around the house and discovering the many places that have yet to be baby-proofed. It sure brings joy to my heart to see Liam walking around so proudly and Karis crawling from room to room. As of 2 weeks ago Liam’s physical therapist said that he no longer needs his walker! That was great news!! Along with all that movement comes more work for mommy. Just when I think it can’t get any harder juggling life with them sometimes… it does! And yet I love it! They sure love opening the drawers and cabinets in our kitchen. Liam doesn’t care so much about what is in the drawer as he does the sounds the drawer makes when he opens and closes it. That’s my little drummer boy for you! Jeremy has begun to put latches inside the cabinet doors. He has had one cabinet left to latch for a few days now and Liam knows it, and grabs the knob and opens and closes it over and over…. ahhhh! Anyway here is proof of their curiosity…

And here is video of Karis crawling a bit to get a ball. She stops and does the sign for “ball” (you touch your finger tips together like you’re holding a ball) which right now is her clapping her hands. Then she does the signal that she needs help by raising her hand, which she learned from Liam. She is really picking up signs quickly and probably because we do them all day long with Liam.

    That’s wonderful, Erin. We did signs with Caleb when he was speech-delayed starting at 2 years old and with Micah starting when he was about 5 or 6 months, and I am a true believer! I think every parent should use signs with their babies! Good for you.

  2. LOVE IT, Erin! Karis is so cute! And it’s so cool that she’s picking up on signing! Do you have any books or other resources you recommend for teaching babies to sign?

    I’m so glad you’re blogging again!
