Wow, I have to admit I am a tad envious reading all of your wonderful signing stories. I starting signing with Ben when he was around 8 mos. I regularly use milk, eat, more, all done, dog, drink and he has not picked up one sign at 15 mos. I had wonderful visions of signing blissfully with my toddler who would then have no reason to throw a temper tantrum due to our excellent communication. LOL!
But he does understand the signs and my spoken word, so I know he will be communicating to me soon. We did have one pretty cool breakthrough, I think. Ben loves hair. He is obsessed with brushing hair, touching hair, etc, which is funny since he doesn't have much more than some fuzz himself. One day I was blowdrying my hair and he looked at me and made a grabbing gesture at his hair. I took that as his first sign, and a self tought one at that. He uses it every now and then, but it's still pretty cool.
So to answer your question, yes I sign. Waiting anxiously for more signs back!
