Lucas signs milk!!

You might think that I just won the lottery, or that Lucas said Mommy or something. No, but after a good 6 months of signing milk to him, he signed it back to me today, and I am seriously on top of the world. I thought I was just imagining things, but he did it a few times. I even got it on video, so I hope you enjoy. Watch his right hand very carefully! This is a big milestone, because it indicates that we have bridged the communication gap with him, and he knows that language exists. What a joyous moment.

Jen,remember me? Ruey's friend. You,Nate,Ruey,my sister Darlene and I have been to breakfast. Ruey has been giving us updates on Lucas which we have been closely following. How wonderful that Lucas has gotten the idea - and signed 'milk' at only 9-months-old! He may have a hearing disability - but he is one smart cookie!! Phyllis

Soooooo cute! What a smart little guy you have on your hands. I remember how rewarding it was to finally see Isaac sign back to me. The sky is the limit for your little man!
