Alexandre signed "fan" a few weeks ago for the first time. He now makes us walk back and forth between our room and his room so he can point to the ceiling fans and make the fan sign. The coolest thing was that last weekend we were outside having a BBQ and after the sun set things cooled down and a breeze kicked in. As I was nursing him, a breeze blew over his hair and he stuck his hand in the air and signed "fan". I could never have had that amazing moment without your class! Thanks so much.
