Baby sign language
Who is doing baby signs here? What signs does your baby know? What signs are you teaching? Are you using any materials to teach it?

So far she only signs milk. I am teaching the sign for more and she understands it but usually just moves both hands around like she can't figure it out.

I'm not using any materials yet, maybe a DVD at closer to age 1. My first kid was doing like 10 signs at this age. I'm realizing how crazy advanced he was!

We do signing here, but no materials yet. There are so many websites out there that teach you how to do the signs for free! We have a couple of the Baby Signing Times videos, but I never used them with Claire. She was already saying several words at this age, so signing just wasn't useful for us.

The twins definitely understand "milk" and "more" and Abigail signs milk. We also do signs for "all done" and "thank you."

DH's twin brother is almost completely deaf, so we use sign language when communicating with him. I sometimes finger spell words for Madalyn. She likes to watch. :)
