Luke's First Signs

We weren't sure at first, but now after a week it is clear that Luke
is using his first sign pretty consistently. Whenever he is sitting in
the high chair, he signs "milk" when gets thirsty. We give him water,
and he stops doing the sign for awhile. When the need arises, he signs
again and gets his drink :)

It's very clear that he knows what it means - if we try to give him
water before he asks for it, he will usually reject it. But when he
signs, he takes it enthusiastically every time. Pretty cool to
communicate with a nine month old baby!

The second top tooth poked out yesterday, so now he has 4 teeth in all.

Luke is a chatterbox this morning. He's learned to say ba-ba in
addition to mama and has been practicing all morning. He definitely
addresses Danielle as mama - I think the plan is to use baba for Theo,
at least until he can sign it or say "eo".
