Looking out the front window:
Mama, our watching flower show, and there’s bugs everywhere!
I want butterfly wings on my next birthday, and then I will fly.
Looking at a picture book featuring a feast:
Yummy foods! How do you get them out of the page?
Talking to Mike about a groundhog we saw that day:
Dad: Did the groundhog say hi to Emma?
Emma: No, Dada, groundhogs can’t talk, and they don’t know how to sign!
Dad: Are there any animals that do sign?
Emma: Squirrels sign “ball” when they hold their nuts.
She’s right – check out ASL for “ball” here.
