as long as I'm here... I might as well ask some questions that have been nagging at me:

What do y'all do about pets? Sign "dog" and "cat" but say their name? Or say "dog" and "cat". Obviously, out in the world, we say "dog" and "cat". But at home, when they're OUR pets????

What do y'all use for "stroller" or "wagon"?? DS LOVES these. I'm a little worried once he learns it he'll ask for them all the time. But right now I'm just dieing to get a few signs of life.

We have two dogs and three birds living with us right now (only the one dog is ours, though) We just use the signs for "dog" and "bird" and we say "dog" and "bird" We don't call the animals dog and bird, we don't use a sign for their names. I am not sure if I will ever introduce a sign for their names.

For now we just talk to him about the animals: "Look at Scout!!! He's the big doggie (sign) Paddington is the little doggie (sign) Look at the doggies(sign) play!" or "Listen to Hero, that naughty bird (sign) he is squawking again! Do you hear that bird? (sign)

or something like that. Hope that helps

I have no idea what the sign for stroller or wagon would be. It is getting late now, but in the morning I will look it up and maybe that will be our sign of the week!

Click the blinkies!

Thank You, Pattyandthemoos, for my beautiful siggy!

As far as animals, we sign the word and say it. For example, we sign dog and say dog. She is old enough now that she can sign dog and verbally say dog.

Thanks A & C's Mom! From that I can sorta make up a sign for wagon, since it isn't in there.

And I found rabbit and rooster and sheep & goat!

***: I like your solution. I'll have to try that.
