Knowledge base


So Jake now knows what a phone is. Today Andrew told him "Go get your phone" not expecting him to know what he was talking about. To our surprise, Jacob toddled over to where his cell phone was on the floor and picked it right up. He is learning faster and faster each week. He now does the signs for "food", "more", and "ball". He also sometimes does the sign for "milk" but we don't know if he fully understands what it means.

He has been really fussy the past few days. Yesterday Rachel discovered that he has 2 new teeth coming in! Both are upper molars.

Baby sign

Jacob is learning more and more signs in sign language. We've been teaching him Baby Sign which is a somewhat simplified version of American Sign Language. Today he learned "cracker" which is where you knock on your elbow. He knows "dog", "more", "food", and kind of knows "ball."
