So I am obviously not very good about updating Evan's blog, but I am however very good at following many other blogs! So for those of you who like to follow us, I am working on improving! Over the last couple of weeks Evan has really begun to makes a variety of new sounds! His Bye Bye is perfect and Mama is sounding really great! Occasionally it comes out more like Mamba and we are focusing on it, but I think Mamba is rather cute! I answer to it, so it works! He vocalizes very well and other words are emerging I just know it! His Uh-oh has finally started to take on a very adorable "O" face, this has been like pulling teeth, but WOW it's finally here! So o-o-o-o is a great sound to finally hear! Not only his verbal communication, but sign as well. Receptively it amazes me how much he understands, but finally he is signing more too. Last Thurs. alone he has 3 new expressive signs...Daddy, Bug, and ball! He also signs more, milk, all done, and dog pretty consistently. I don't sign as much and I know I could, but am ok knowing he is taking in EVERYTHING! He is always listening and watching! Eventually we will be primarily verbal with him, but I want him to have some basics signs for the pool and silent moments. I am just so thankful that he is able to listen and to speak, how amazing is that!
