joy | day 21

Today, we are focusing on the hands of our loved ones.  Perfect timing.  Michael has been asking me to teach him the sign language alphabet lately.  I am not sure where he learned that there even was one, but he always wants to know what letters look like "with his hands."  I am sure this all stems back to when he couldn't communicate any other way than his hands.  As a toddler, he made up his own sign language to communicate with us.  I can't believe just this time last year, he still really couldn't talk.  Now...I sometimes find myself wanting to ask him to just be quiet for one minute...but I usually think twice.  :)
