Baby sign language

When Little Guy was much littler, we started to do some signs for him. I don't know how many hundreds of times I signed "milk" while feeding him! It wasn't until he was about a year old before he started signing back to us.

He now has several signs in his repertoire. "Milk" still seems to be his favorite, followed closely by "more" ("more" is his go-to sign. If he wants something, he'll start signing "more").


He also does "water" and "eat."


Another frequent sign is "all done."   We really watch for this one when he is eating, because very shortly after he signs it, he pushes his plate to the floor!  He picked up "washing hands" and will do this one anytime we go upstairs (he really does like to wash his hands, although I think its more that he is fascinated by the running eater).

We are working on manners with "please" and "Thank you."


His newest signs are "help" and "change."


 I love how we can communicate is some small ways with him!
