    Works for Me Wednesday (#5)
    (45 min. till Thursday, but I made it!)

    Baby sign language has been a recent topic on our May/June mommies message board and I can say it definitely works for us here. When 'K' was around 5 months we started signing the word "milk" by the time she was 7 months she would sign for milk back to us.

    I was skeptical as to how much she'd actually learn at such a young age, but I have been pleasantly surprised. She mastered "eat, milk, & more" by 10 months.

    When she's hungry and wants to nurse she will come to me and sign milk, while I also know that "mmmnummah" also means milk - and "aaaheeeeah" means eat - it is nice to have the reassurance of her signing.

    Just last week she learned "up" and "down" and we are currently learning "bath" and "diaper change".

    I came across a website that has free online video of signs. We use this site to show us the correct way to do each sign. It really doesn't take much time at all to implement signs. We simply watch the video and use the chosen sign whenever we use the word we are working on.

    I have noticed that since she was 11 months she is picking up on more and more signs. She is able to tell us what she wants and we can understand her signs, even if we can't understand her baby talk.

    Here is the website that "works for us": Baby Sign language (select the ASL for babies link)

      I love that site! I actually have a link to it on my site, and I just visited today to find out the sign for "juice". I'm glad you're spreading the word about it. (Much more economical than buing a bunch of baby sign language books).

      I did ASL with my first, but it has gone by the wayside with my second. I should do it though since she is in that whine to get what I need/want stage. Totally drives me nuts. =)
