I continue to work on signing with Isla. However, she is more interested in trying to talk than to sign (see previous post).
I am working with her on signing 'more', but she has yet to attempt to copy me. She will copy me when I make the sign for milk, but she does not make it spontaneously.
This past week, we have been watching my in-laws dog, Bella. I have been demonstrating the sign for dog whenever Bella is around.
This morning, Isla copied me when I made the sign for dog. Later, she made it spontaneously when she saw Bella. So Isla's first independent sign was 'dog'. She is her mommy's girl.
