Baby Signing

A few weeks ago Danielle asked if we had started any sign language with Kate.  We hadn't but, I've wanted to.  Prior to starting with our family, Danielle worked with a special needs child and helped her with sign language so that she could communicate.  So she really wanted to introduce signs to Kate.

Danielle suggested Signing Time as a good DVD to use as an introduction to signing.  I was also talking to my friend Kim about it and her girls love Baby Signing Time which is the infant/ younger version of the DVD Danielle suggested.




I ordered it and it came in this past week.  Kate has watched part of it a few times. I think she is still a little young to really grasp a lot of the signs but I'm hoping she picks up on some things!  I have a feeling cracker or snack will be her first sign - the girl is obsessed with Puffs!

Warning to all you moms (and dads) - the songs are super annoying.  I pretty much have "we're gonna eat, eat, eat a ____" going through my head all day. 

However, I will take annoying songs all day if it helps Kate learn to communicate her wants/ needs before she can actually form words to express herself!

We're hoping to start introducing baby signing too, I'm going to check out that video! Hope Kate is enjoying it :) I bet she will be picking things up before you know it!
