Baby Sign Language
Baby sign language saved us a lot of tears before Ali could speak and articulate to us what she wanted... plus I think it actually helped speed up her language development! Our neighbor's son, who is 2 and still not talking that great, uses his signs all the time to let us, and his best bud Ali, know what he needs. Thank the lord for Ali's daycare, who got her, and me, started on the signing process. We unfortunately did not start signing with her until she was a year old.. I wish we would have started sooner!
I was recently contacted by Misty Weaver, the Chief Editor at www.babysignlanguage.com and asked if I would like to host a guest post on baby sign language. Being that I totally dig baby sign language, used it with Ali, and plan to teach it to Avery in the near future, I was totally down! This article gives a great starting point for starting the process with your own babies!
