BABY SIGN LANGUAGE
With my first two, I did not think or even know of doing sign language with them. I tried very little with Little Mama and she never really did sign. I did not push or do it daily to teach her. Sarah does a little with her children which impresses me. After hearing all that my friend Laura's little girl can sign at her young age I thought more about it this time with Smiley. I am very glad to say that he signs "more" in his own version. Next I want to teach him eat, please, thank you. We have a cardinal that visits our kitchen window every day and all day long. I thought for fun I would sign "bird". Believe it or not, on Monday morning while lying on the couch I heard the bird. I pointed to the bird and signed bird. Then he stuck out his finger, pointed to the bird, and raised his finger up and down. Close enough! It is so cute to see a baby signing words in communication with us! I love it!
