Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee

Cash has a new sign! We were looking at a story on the iPad yesterday and Cash said "butterfly" without being prompted. I have been working on butterfly for ages, but in this case I didn't sign it, he did it on his own spontaneously. He is a funny little kid.

We continue to see nice progress since our last trip to India. It is not as exciting as after the first trip (the walking, obviously), but there have been some great advancements. For me, the biggest is that he is more engaged. He listens all the time and he wants to be a part of things. His eye contact is so much better than it was a year ago. He initiates touching us! (I got him to smack Gramma on the butt the other day. It was very amusing to me.) It is hard to quantify those changes for outside observers, especially since Cash is still very much a person who only shows what he knows when he wants to. Plus, physically, he is now walking around without braces. It is an awkward, loping gait, but no braces is a big improvement. He looks adorable in his bermudas with his skinny legs.
