Signing Saves the Day (Again!)

My 10 month old started making a fuss in the middle of dinner tonight. She turned her head away from the spoon, scowled at her water and began to whine.
Is something wrong? What is she trying to communicate?
Then, she signed "night night".

Within minutes of being put on the couch she fell asleep. I'm once again very thankful for being to sign with my baby! It really does cut down on crying and tantrums, as well as headaches.

Her signs so far that we have recognized are cracker, clean/wash (she seems to combine them), baby, night-night, bye-bye, pointing and more/clap (looks like more followed by applause).
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。
