I am happy to say that Thing 2 has been highly conversational in the last couple of weeks, using baby signs. All I have to do is mention the words and she does the sign. Of course when it comes to eating and asking for more, both Thing 1 and Thing 2 do them on their own without prompting.
Signs that Thing 2 knows and does regularly:
-stinky (we made this up - she pinches her nose)
Thing 1 knows all of the above as well, but she's too stubborn to use them regularly.
I've been trying to video tape either Thing 1 or Thing 2 doing each of the signs but no luck yet.
CORRECTION: Note that it's Thing 2 that does the signs regularly, not Thing 1. Thanks to Daddy for catching the mistake. With all these Things, I'm getting confused. :-)
