Lily has been dropping a lot of signs lately but one that she is still working really hard on is ‘I love you’. She will throw her hand up in the air and with an expression of pure confusion look at her hand as if in total disbelief that her fingers aren’t in the position she’s urging them to go. With the utmost concentration she tries to will her fingers into formation but quickly resorts to using her other hand to push her pinky up while keeping those pesky middle fingers down. Tonight, after just a brief moment of concentration, she gave up. She looked from her hand to me and made the next best sign. With a big smile she flashed me the best thumbs up I’ve ever seen.
