I think now is the time to start teaching my son baby signs. For anyone not familiar, baby signing is not for the hearing impaired. It is a way to babies to learn language when they are still incapable of speech. Their brains understand but they are still too young to vocalize.
I am actually clueless on where to start. I have not purchased any books or DVD’s. We received a Baby Einstein DVD but it isn’t something that is going to teach my son signs. I will be the one teaching.
The first sign I am going to show him will be milk. I have chosen this since he naturally makes this sign while nursing. He opens and closes his hands as he eats. It is adorable. I am kicking myself for not starting this sooner. I honestly thought it was too early. But now that I am finally researching it I should have started showing him signs earlier. He will still be able to learn of course.
As soon as he signs himself you better believe I will post a video. For now he can watch me sign and hopefully connect the signs to the action.
