Anyway, I finally came to a place of resignation. I figured that Phoebe would just talk instead of sign, and it really wasn't that big of a deal if she could sign or not. And really, it isn't that big of a deal.
Well, I should have known that she would surprise me.
Like magic, we signed "all done" after breakfast. She'd eaten her bottle, fruit and cereal, and had moved on to her Cheerios while we ate our cereal. And then she stopped picking up her O's and waved her hand wildly in the air. We weren't sure if this was really a sign, but determined it had to be since she immediately proceeded to feed Jake her leftovers.
Miraculous! The child will sign!
Well, she was so excited about our enthusiasm for her newfound skill, she began to sign all done for everything. Tired of sitting? "All done." Ready to play? "All done." Happy? "All done." Finished going potty? "All done." Reading? "All done."
Now, I realize we should diversify, but... for now, she can be done with whatever she wants. We think it's pretty darn cute, anyway.
