Manners

Well, we're in that phase where Reid knows what he wants, but lets me know mostly by grunts - especially when it comes to food! I decided that it was probably a good time to start teaching him to at least say please before his grunts! :) So I've been working on the "more" and "please" signs with him. At first, whenever I'd ask him what he wanted, he'd rub his hands together - a combination of the "more" sign and the "please" sign, but now he's actually doing the "more" sign, and rubbing his hands together for "please." It's so funny to see! My only issue now is that he'll do this whenever he wants anything - so I just have to figure out what it is! (Although, 99% of the time it's snacks!)
