Evelyn (exactly 8 months today) just used the sign for "more" while eating yesterday!
However shes been waving "hi" for two months. Does that count as a sign too?

She also started signing itsy bitsy spider a few weeks ago. Just this morning, i caught her signing and "singing" it outloud to herself. She was SO excited when i suddenly joined in from across the room. And just think, i never would have known what "song" she was singing if not for her using the sign!

But i should clarify, her sign for more is one arm straight out and the other coming to meet it, instead of two hands meeting fingertip to fingertip. And her spider is just both hands together while raising her arms in front of her. (There are no spidery fingers wiggling yet). Im sure it will take time for her to develop the fine motor skills needed to do them "right". Of course, that doesnt matter as long as we understand eachother.

When my daughter was about 8 months old she started learning signs, she learned "more", than "banana", "together", "friend".. And kept learning new signs each month. For a few months she knew more signs than actual words. It was so nice to communicate with her before she could verbally express herself. It took about 3 months of seeing the signs to pick them up in the beginning. We started at 5 months and she picked it up at 8.
