Brady uses a few signs, and we're starting PECs.  He also takes my hand and pulls me to some things as well.

It started with a couple signs. But he has really done good in the last year. He does still scream a little but not as much as he used to. He now has enough words to usually get his point across.

Sams very verbal, but a screamer.. Its funny, i read this quote yesterday...

When you're drowning, you don't say 'I would be incredibly pleased if someone would have the foresight to notice me drowning and come and help me,' you just scream--- John Lennon

If only Sam didnt think eveything is drowning... Lol... Everything is met with this sence of urgency... So he is a screamer when pushed to the dge.. Which we come up to that edge when he cant find a certain lego, or if there is REALLY something wrong. Lol

Awwww ...... your lil guy sounds so anxious. Does he have any type of anxiety disorder?  Sorry if I'm over-stepping asking, it just seems he deals with alot of anxiety-related things. Please don't take offense.

My daughter has a few pecs pictures she knows but doesn't seem interested in learning any others. She's getting very good at conveying what she wants through gestures .... she'll take you to the pantry and pat on the knob for you to open it, she'll drag you around the house to get something for her, lol. It really is such an improvement though, before I just had to provide whatever I thought she needed because she just wouldn't bother to even try to communicate.

They talk, though my 6 year old will revert back to one word requests and grunts/growls, and my 3 year old screams. She has started echolalia again, I think it is because she is stressing about my dh leaving next week. :(.

I will be start pec cards with my 18 month old this weekend. Hopefully she will catch on.
