- The other day Paul, who hadn't shaved in a few days, tried to give Anthony a kiss on the cheek. We couldn't figure out why Anthony signed goat- was he calling Daddy a goat?! Then we remembered that to sign goat you show the goat's horns and then the goat's hairy chin. So although he doesn't know the sign for beard, he was telling us that Daddy was too scratchy for a kiss!
- Sometimes he gets the lyrics to songs wrong. In one song about crows, he signs "car" when the crows say "cah,cah". Good to know he's picking up my New Yawk accent. He also signs along to another song, which goes, "I had an old friend over for tea", by signing "teeth". I wonder if he thinks it's strange to have someone over for teeth.
- And my personal favorite: A local store has on display plaster casts of pregnant bellies.
This is a tasteful, artsy way to commemorate the beauty and miracle of your pregnancy.
Whenever we go to the store, Anthony points at them and signs, "gorilla."
