I've been blogging for a full year now! That's pretty amazing for me, I feel. I love how much has been documented over the last year. I've spent only one afternoon writing in Eliot's babybook but have over 200 posts about our everyday life including pictures! I love it! Thanks for stoping by so often and checking in! We enjoy reading your comments and sharing your stories with us. Happy Blog-iversary everyone!!

And to celebrate, I'll share a quick Eliot story. We've been using sign language with him for a year now. Some signs he uses ALL THE TIME and for some, he's moved on to using words. Over the last month I noticed him intentionally blinking at me and then getting frustrated that I'm not doing something in response. Then it dawned on me one day and I asked if he wanted his blanket. To this question, he got very excited. Ever since then if we see him blinking and hand him his blanket, he's delighted to have communicated!

So THAT's what that was all about.. I noticed him squeezing his eyes shut a lot, I just thought he was tired or being silly! So cute that he made up his own sign :)
