365/135 Open

Syd was up late tonight. She wanted to cuddle so figure I would treat her and let her stay up.  But in the end she gave me a treat. 

Her teachers have started teaching her “baby sign language” {basic commands/requests) and today they informed me that she signed “open” and “more” repeatedly in class. She does many things in class that I cannot get her to do at home, but it made me extremely happy to hear about.

We were just sitting together and I was chatting with her. I signed open and she smiled and signed it right back while saying “open”!  I was so happy and excited I started crying. When Syd saw the tears she exclaimed “ought oh” and started wiping my tears with her blanket.

Bless my heart this child brings me small joys daily. Hubby and I were just talking about this the other day… It is hard to be discouraged by her hearing problems because she is so happy and joyful. Watching her personality emerge with the help of ESA is a blessing and brings tears of happiness to me most days.
