I have been teaching Jimmy baby sign language. We are using the book and dvd "Sign with Your Baby" by Joseph Garcia. I haven't exactly been a stickler about it, but I at least wanted to teach Jimmy the basics and helpful signs such as "pain" so he can show where it hurts it he gets an owie. Well a couple days ago, he started showing me the sign for "please" and it is just the sweetest thing! You rub your chest in a circular motion and he has it down pat! So here is a pic of him doing it.
I highly recommend teaching baby sign language to your little one, it is so much fun and it is just so cute when they start doing it back to you! It can also be a huge help if they get hurt and you don't see it happen because if they know the "pain" sign (tap your two index fingers together over the area of pain) they can show you where it hurts. It also helps lessen frustration when they want or need something (which means less crying!) because they can tell you what they need, such as to eat, drink, have milk, have a diaper change, etc. So get to your library and check out this book!
