ok, so I think Zoey may finally be showing signs that she is trying to communicate! yesterday during breakfast she did the sign for "more" ... I figured it was just a fluke, but I would give her a bite and say something like "you want more food" (and I'd do the signs) ... and she continued to do the sign a few more times! WOW. then, just now this morning, we heard the garage door open and Zoey loudly began saying "da-da-da-da-da-da" ... is it possible she's telling me that she knows that sound means daddy is home?! WOW.
