Other people get hungry, too.
Today after dinner, Brian, Mira, and I were all sitting around reading books together. After finishing "That's Not My Bunny" for the 15th time, Mira decided it was time to change books and went and picked up "The Very Hungry Caterpillar". As she picked it up, she made the sign for hungry (we actually use the ASL sign for eat, which is basically to put a fist up to your mouth repeatedly). In addition to making this sign when she would like to eat, she will also make the sign whenever it is appropriate to the conversation, such as when we are talking about food or when reading "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" book. But today was different. Today she took it one step further. Today she picked up the book and made the sign, and I said "Yes, that book is about a caterpillar who is hungry." And she took her little fist and repeatedly put it up to the caterpillar's face on the cover of the book. Brian and I just looked at each other in shock, said "Did you see....?" and then "Our daughter is amazing!"
