Its been lovely to see the Sun over this last week. If it wasnt so cold i’d go as far as to say that it was ‘Ice Cream’ weather. It was this time last year!
Bruiser loves Ice Cream. This is one of the signs that he has taught himself and started using without any input from us and he signs it perfectly. Thank you Mr Tumble 🙂
However, it’s not a word he can say very clearly (sounds something like nineen) and more often than not he will sign without attempting the word. Quite often after a meal you can be clearing the plates away, back turned and unbeknown to us, he is sat there signing ‘ice cream’ to tell he wants ice cream for pudding. If we miss this moment we get a full on meltdown where his ability to communicate shuts down and its a game of trial and error on our part to find out what it is that he wanted (it’s not always ice cream that he asks for).
