Yes, Noah is actually saying a lot of words. He also does a lot of signing. He probably says 15-20 words and does about 6-8 signs.



thats awesome, i love seeing them sign! i think many people forget that signing is more natural to them at first, it helps them communicate what they cannot say.

I am very thankful that we taught Noah signs because he was able to let us know what he wanted or needed before he was able to tell us. They can learn to sign way before they can learn to control their vocal cords.

We (dd and I) couldn't get Bradley to sign. We had him tested to make sure there wasn't any medical reasons he wasn't talking. Then a year ago, at 3.5 he started talking and hasn't shut up yet.

I tried to teach him "thank you" in sign language but he'd turn his head away. Wouldn't say it or sign it. Nothing. But his hearing was fine, nothing wrong with throat or vocal cords or tongue.

Now he talks so fast at times, I have to make him slow down and he gets impatient with me.

boy ladies you sure are chatty tonight. When I left, I was on page 2, now there are 4 pages. I had to go make supper. We were having meatloaf, I was just starting to mix it up when Krystal came running upstairs that one of her hermit crabs was dead. He had mites. So we had to clean the aquarium and boil all the bowl and plants to kill the bugs and then give all the hermies baths until there were no bugs on them. They are a huge pain in the butt.

Oh, that sounds fun! I am going to hopefully work on some ATC's and inchies tonight for a swap. Also, I am very excited about this, but have you ladies checked out Vintage Me's Gallery?

I'm trying to ink some letters, I always find it difficult to do with curvy pieces. Do you have a trick for that?

Viv when you get your scrap place set up want me to come and teach a class? What are you calling it?




I use a small stiff paint brush dabbed with ink. It seems to get into corners I can't get the ink pad to go.

Yeah Viv, what you calling your space??

Ok, so I updated the first post. Will you ladies please check it over to see if it all looks right? I do plan on adding more to it once we get rolling more.

Also, I was thinking that when we have challenges that we could take turns posting them in the blog instead of crowding up the thread with them. What do you think?




sounds good to me

ok, I am acu.

I feel like I have bugs crawling on me now. But there aren't, it is just the idea. Just like if you know someone has lice, you feel like you have bugs crawling on you. I know being a cosmetologist and we were going to school, we had a customer come in and I went to shampoo her hair and she had so many bugs crawling in her hair and on her neck I freaked out and started screaming. I was just nuts all day thinking the bugs were crawling on me, I made the instructor check my hair everyday for a week to make sure none got on me. EWWWW
