Signing times and rolling off

Today Eli waved bye bye to Nana repeatedly for the first time. It was very cute and he was very proud of himself. He’s also started to sign ‘milk’ although not each time he wants to eat. I’m looking forward to the next phase, where he starts to be able to let us know what he wants and needs with more than a cry, scream or shout. Both Lex and Tilly did some signing before they started to talk and it was both cute and useful. Lex even made up some of his own signs – a fist in the air was thank you – and he could ask for another biscuit even as the first was still in his mouth…

Parenting fail this evening for me – Eli ‘forgot’ how to roll when he learnt how to crawl but this skill has now returned. I shouldn’t have trusted him to stay where I left him on the bed this evening as I sorted out the curtains but I did and a thump was my reminder that he’s fast, mobile and too young not to fling himself off things. He was ok, just shocked – I hate it when things like that happen, I was just that fraction too slow sorting things out.
