(Monday August 23rd)
Not much happened today, my hayfever tablets stopped working and/or I started to come down with a cold.
In communication news, J-cub used signing for the first time without prompting or seeing something that he knows the sign for. It was a few hours after he'd woken up, when (if I was on the ball) I would normally have started asking him if he was ready for bed. I'd said nothing, and so he let me know it was time by coming over to the sofa, picking up a cushion and placing it on the floor, then sitting on it and signing 'milk'.
We spent the rest of the day mostly covered in chalk.
