The Best Milestone Yet!!

Today, I completed the phrase, "I love you!"

It's something I've been working on for a while. I got the hand motion for love (crossing my arms across my chest) and the motion for you (pointing) down a few weeks ago. Then I started saying "love" and later added a quick "I" to the beginning.

But... tonight... as Mommy and Daddy were putting me to bed, I completed the entire thing, complete with ALL words and hand signs. "I LOVE YOU!"

I LOVE YOU more! All of the way to the moon and back. (You know how Grandpa can't hear----he just thought you were saying all 3 words several weeks ago)

Yea, Thatcher! It is so cool for you to do both hand and mouth together. I've heard you say "I love you", but this is the first with sign language. It means "I love you" twice as much...doesn't it!!
