I started using some simple baby sign language with Roo when she was about six months old. Words like “milk,” “more,” “all done”…
She watched me but didn’t do much with it until about two months ago. She started to push our hands together to indicate “more.” About three weeks ago, she started signing more on her own when she wanted more food.
Today, we were sitting on a blanket outside in our backyard. I got her this awesome bubble blowing machine from Tar.get a week ago and she loves it. We were sitting together and I stopped using the machine because she was just sitting there. All of a sudden she started clapping her hands and smiling. Then she looked at me and signed more over and over again until I started the machine again.
I was stunned but so excited. She GETS IT! She understands the concept of more beyond meal/food association! I’m so proud of my little girl.
Am I nuts or isn’t baby sign language so darn cool?!
