Sign of the times

It seems to be pretty trendy to teach your kid sign language these days to help them communicate with you before they're truly verbal. In fact, when I ask a patient's parent at work "How many words does he/she have?," they invariably answer something like "2 or 3, but also a few signs too."

Joseph really couldn't care less about signing. It took about 6 months just to learn this one.

And to be honest with you, we always knew he wanted more anyway. He always wants more! But it's a cute parlor trick, isn't it?
