Sign Language

We are teaching Eloise sign language - however, the following is not part of it. :D I get weekly e-mails about my baby's development & this week they included the following:

What your baby tells you through sign language:

"Please change my diaper": Turn beet red and make straining expression, then smile.

"I'd like something to eat, please": Cram fist in mouth and suck wildly.

"I'm tired": Make a series of weeping gestures before closing eyes and lolling
head backward.

"Please pass me that thing up there that I can't reach": Point and grunt, then
continue pointing and open mouth into screaming position.

"No thank you. I think I've had enough": Throw food or object to floor with
exaggerated grin.

***These are so true. That's right - welcome to my life.*** :D

What accomplished babies we have. They have both mastered all of these signs! It's pretty amazing how they get their points across without using words. Imagine ordering your Starbucks without words. Hey, doesn't Ben owe you a Starbucks?
