Now that there is Signing...

Once a baby learns to sign the personality comes out in a new way.  Our mealtimes have started to include a game of "Where's the water?" at the end.

Sign of the Week

Are you thirsty? Would you know how to sign it?  Yet another very useful Sign of the Week!

サインを始まった! We have a signer!

Finally caught it on video... My daughter has added "baby" to "bye-bye" and "hello" as signs she uses regularly. Yesterday she got creative and signed "baby" while holding the DVD remote to let me know she wanted to watch Baby Signing Time.

Signing Time Romper

This is my happy little signer.  She's 9 months old and just starting to sign.  So far she has been seen signing "byebye" "baby" and "more" as she copies other signing people.  She also "babbles" with her hands a lot!

The shirt she is wearing is the Signing Time Romper.  It comes in the size 12 mo. (about 80cm) and can be bought in the store.
If you have any questions I can be reached at heidi@signingtimeacademy.com

Please e-mail me if you live in Japan but are not in a location where classes are offered. I can help you get started with Baby Signing Time and/or Signing Time.

日本に住んでいて、近くに手話のクラスがない場合などは、メールをくだされば、質問に答えたり、皆さんが Baby Signing Time や Signing Time を始めるのをお手伝いできると思います。
