An Amazing Ellie Bear Moment

So many months we have been working on this.  So much time, energy, and Baby Signing Time! . . . Then just out of the blue, our little toddler bear surprises us and then there was the big happy dance.

Andrew and I were beaming with pride.

Are you ready?

Wait for it.



She not only signed, but also said "Dada" to Andrew!  Ta-da!  Super Bear!

There will be no discussion as to why Ellie is onto of the IKEA shelf.
I told you she is a climber :)

Rock on sweet Ellie Bear.  Rock on.  Mama is proud of you and your determination.

There is nothing more precious than Father-Daughter love.

On a side note, Andrew and I were both "mama" for a while.  We would try to correct her and she would look at Drew with this smug little look and say "mama".  Little Stinker.



  1. This is wonderful and no small feat! How exciting!

  2. Congrats Ellie!

    My girl did that too, except in reverse - she WAS signing mom and then stopped & would only sign dad but would laugh at me as she did it. I was just as happy w/her being a stinker as w/the words.

  3. Woo hoo!!!! Awesome news!!!! So proud of Ellie!

  4. We are so proud of you Ellie. So proud we featured you at our Facebook page!! :) http://www.facebook.com/pages/Baby-Sign-Language/135339096490587

  5. Yay, Ellie!!! Now I really, really wish you were going to see Rachel this weekend with us!

  6. Checking in from Gathers No Moss! LOVE your blog, can't wait to read up. Ellie is completely adorable - she has beautiful hair lol. Looking forward to keeping in touch!

  7. Okay. Next step. "Grandma"! I will accept "Awa" if necessary.

  8. Wooo hooo Ellie!! Darren and are are both dad. I try to help her sign mom and she always gives me a funny look and puts that thumb right back up on her head. :)


I love your comments and I read each and every single one of them.
