Long overdue update

So been busy to haven't updated the blog in a while.

What's been very interesting of late is how sponge like Ava has become. It must be her age (16 months) but she is learning loads. Here is a (shamless video) where she can do high five, find her tummy, do clap hands and stuff. Although not in this video she also can Lamh sign 'mum' which was very exciting in our household! We are going mad with Lamh now to try get more into her.

On the Lamh front we bought the "Lamh a Song" DVD and it is great, the only criticism I would level is the reference section where you can look up words, the sign is actioned but the 'Lamhin' mouths another word? You would need to see it for it to make sense but otherwise the DVD is good to plonk your child down in front of it rather than say Sky News :) Ava is glued to it!

Finally a mention of Down Syndrome Centre who you can follow on Twitter or Facebook
These guys seem very smart and had an online live chat last Friday with Ann Haig which had technical issues but will no doubt work great going forward. They also had some events of late which were very successful.
