How do you know...

My son is 13-1/2 months and he's got about 10 signs down really well.  My question is, how do you know when they understand what they are signing and really mean it?  For example, is he signing all done because I ask him if he is all done, or does he really want to be done eating?

We were at a restaurant last weekend and he signed more cheese without us prompting him, which made me very happy.  Tonight he signed more eat on his own, so I think he might have the more concept down, but I don't really know.

Edited to add...  Does anyone else have more trouble with their husband learning the signs then their child?  My husband is one of the smartest people I know and he just can't get the difference between some of the signs.  We watch Baby Signing Time and he signs along and loves it, but he just isn't very accurate.
