I took 3 years of ASL in high school, I'm not super fluent any more (I graduated 10 years ago). But I was interested enough in the idea at the time that I wrote a paper on it. I plan to use the little sign I remember and start small. Some of the things I remember was that whether you use true ASL or your own home signs - start with a small number and repeat them frequently.

I used to baby sit a girl that knew sign and at age 2 when she wasn't really speaking yet - she was way more calm than any other 2 year old I had watched because she had some form of communicating what she wanted.

My baby is due May 16th - so I have more time to think and plan.
