Riley has been doing so many great things lately. It is amazing to me to see him grow each day. Tonight we dropped Rex and Justin off at soccer practise and Riley and I took off to to run some errands. I pulled through McDonald's for a sweet tea, which is currently my new addiction thanks to Kacey, so Riley decides he want a drink. He is in the back saying please, please, please. When I ask him what he wants he signs drink. Then I say to him, Riley do you want a drink and he simply replies YES. I told him that we'd have to wait until we got to the store and he says K. I LOVE that he is starting to really communicate with us. He really understand a lot and if you ask enough questions and know the context of his words and signs he can really tell you a lot. I'm hoping that some day soon everyone will be able to understand him.
I need to get a video of him signing Wheels on the Bus. It is hysterical to watch him sign most of the verses, but the baby on the bus is the best. It drives me nut to watch him at school during circle time because I know he can do all the signs but he gets so excited watching the other kids and the teacher that he just watches and does a few signs.
A year ago at this time we took this picture of the boys together. Wow how they have both grown!!!
