Sign Me Up

I can fully admit that when Nolana first discussed teaching Daija baby sign language I was quite skeptical and dismissed it. But Nolana was determined and in the past little while Daija has been learning signs at a rapid pace.

I can now also admit that it has been a really good thing. It has eased some of her frustration in being unable to communicate to us what she wants.

Here's a recent video of some of the signs she knows, though for some reason cat seems to evade her at this point! It's neat to see her learn and get excited to be able to communicate, she's so proud of herself sometimes!

I have never liked sign language for kids and did not support the idea, but after watching this amazing clip, I am a fan. Who knew 'help' and ;cracker' could be so cute?!
