I am so happy right now!! My sweet little JT communicated with me today!! He has said words before but they are so few and far between. He has said "book" twice and "cracker" 4 times. The only thing he said semi regularly was "Mama" but only if he was hurt or I was leaving etc. and he didn't even say it everyday. But today *happy sigh*, today he had a break through. There were Hershey's kisses on the table and he kept signing "please". I knew that he wanted them but I played stupid like always and asked him what he wanted. Without me prompting him in any way he signed "candy" to me. I tried it three or four times today and every time he signed "candy" without me saying or signing the word. This is the very first time we have communicated, that he has been able to tell me what he wants. He has signed please and more but please and more what?! It has been such a frustrating time, we have tried for so long...sometimes I forget that eventually all this work pays off.
