Advances in communication

Jamie can now say and sign many words. Spoken words include:

  • Mama
  • Daddy
  • Ham
  • Hi
  • Baby
  • Nine
  • No
  • Papa
  • Yeah
  • Hi-ya! (Karate style)
  • Uh-oh

Sign language words include:

  • More
  • Eat
  • Cookie
  • Drink
  • Help
  • Hurt
  • Please
  • Thank you
  • Hi
  • Bye
  • Friend
  • Stop
  • Go

He’s signed a couple of two-word phrases so far: “stop story” (he was tired and wanted to go to bed) and “more please” (asking for more jello).

He also can recognize many letters and numbers and point to them when asked. I would say he now knows at least 70% of them. I think that’s pretty unusual for a 1-1/2 year old.
