This morning I was feeding Sutton as usual... I've been trying to teach him some sign language to communicate for just two days now. I'm starting with "All done". Right after I fed him he was showing signs that he didn't want anymore, so I grabbed his hands and did the sign with him and said, "All done". He smiled and did the sign! At the same time trying to vocalize "da da".

At lunch today I was feeding him his peaches and he did the sign and said "da da" all by himself without prompting! I couldn't believe it!
