It amazes me everyday how much Gracie understands. She uses a little sign language - claps her hands for "more" and "waves" for just about everything else - hello, goodbye, milk, and bird but is definitely making the effort to communicate using signs...I just need to be better about using signs more often and working with her to sign back.
While I know it will take a few more months for her to really start using her own words, she truly understands almost everything we tell her, show her, or ask her do. She is a very good listener and is very helpful. She's been giving Tucker his breakfast and dinner for a few weeks now. I think it is the cutest thing!
