Baby Sign Language

Wednesday, August 11, 2010

I was told that it is a good thing to teach Baby sign language at an early age, say 4 months. I made a half-hearted attempt at it then but didn't stick with it. Partially because baby started to create her own sign language. When she wanted something or more of something, she would wave her fingers toward her, as in "come here".

Now, she has become adept at communicating "no" by shaking her head. When I'm giving her food and she's had enough, she shakes her head and no longer opens her mouth to take the food. When I try to let her play with something and she doesn't want to she shakes her head no, or just cries, if she's in a really bad mood...

On a side note, we went to Story Time at a local library this week for the first time. It was a mixture of singing, movement, props, book-reading, and even bubbles. It was all very cute and exciting, but Baby seemed more interested in the other kids there and other people's purses.
