Ben Knows Sign Language

The joke in our house has quickly become that our babysitter is a better mother than I am! I started it, don't worry, and it really is a joke. The most recent example is that it just dawned on me like yesterday that Ben has been signing to me! Mary, our babysitter, said something about teaching the little ones sign language and I quickly dismissed her because again, I'm not the greatest Mom! I now recognize that Ben is signing. He knows "more," "please," and "thank you." I was able to catch the first two on this video tonight at dinner. He's so good! He's also really trying to say those words. Unfortunately for the video, I had the tv on in the background and he was distracted (again, not the best Mom!!) but he still got those signs in there.

In other news! Had a great time in Michigan! All the kids had fun! Ben and his cousin Blake are going to be the best of buddies! They are so cute together. Blake is so attentive and concerned. Any time Ben cried, I immediately had his blanket and pacifier in hand from Blake. Such a sweetie! My niece Morgan turned four which is unbelievable so we got to celebrate that, too.

Ben updates: He has broken all those teeth, including 2 molars. He pulled himself together for this weekend and wasn't too crabby for the Huling family. But you can tell he's uncomfortable. He's also continuing to pull at his right ear. He has another doctor's appointment tomorrow for his poor ears. I can't remember what I said on the last update and can't look now since I'm uploading a video, but in short, Ben has had a major double ear infection that has been stubborn to medications and we learned after 10days on Amoxocillin that he is allergic to it so he had a full body rash the better part of a week. Poor kiddo.

Words Ben's saying new this week: "AAAA eeee" translation "Abby" continues to be his favorite. He also now says "cookie." "Aaaaahhhhh" (like the sound you make after taking a sip of a delightful beverage) is how he asks for his milk, but he will say "mill" from time to time asking for it. He's just constantly "talking." Looking right at you as though you should understand every word. One of these days I will. He may also be saying more with his hands but I don't understand that, either. I'll have to ask our babysitter to give me a lesson on how to talk to my son apparently!
