AVT baby part 2

So what are we accomplishing here? Many things. Number one letting Brook teach her baby AVT skills, is actually continuing education for her, but she doesn't know it. You may have read about this in The Laundry Basket in I'm All Ears. When I knew she would refuse to put up her clean laundry this morning, I said "Brook, when you were little and learning new words, I would give you a shirt or socks, or some other clothes and tell you where to put it, like middle drawer, top drawer, pink hanger, closet....maybe you need to teach your baby some new words." It actually worked, she took the clothes and gave them to her baby, who then walked the clothes to her room where she was instructed to put it on top of the shelf in her closet. Also, I need some "quiet time" sometimes to monitor blogs for Deaf Village, or maybe five minutes of peace so if I can get Miss Never Stops Talking to focus on her teaching her "kids" a few minutes a day, we're multi-tasking.

Y'all need to come teach me and Riley! Brook is awesome. And glad y'all have a date for Gage. Sending prayers for a smooth operation!

So cute! I've been reading your blog for a while now and you and your children are such an inspiration to me!
