A Unique Moment With A Signer ~ Chris

My son and I had one of those “moments” that only signing parents can experience.  I was cleaning him up after a meal and all of the sudden my son started doing the sound for SQUIRREL.  He doesn’t bring his hands up yet to make the sign, but he knows the chattering sound a squirrel makes.  I quickly looked over to the tree we have that overhands our rear balcony and instantly spotted the squirrel, but only briefly as he made his way behind the trunk and out of sight.  Would this moment had occurred without sign?  Doubtful.  I would imagine he would have just pointed, maybe grunted and I would have said something like “Oh you see the tree.” And then carried on with cleaning him up.  Instead we both saw and talked about the squirrel.
