We started baby sign language classes when Timothy was about 7 months old. We were at it for a few months and then got disheartened by the absence of signing on Timothy’s part.
And now – pretty much overnight – he started signing!
He’s been signing “more” for some time now – because they sign it in daycare. He’s been signing my made-up sign for “cherrios” (waving an “o: sign in the air).
But yesterday as we were reading a book, he signed “dog”, “cow”, “horse”, and “cat”! And today I showed him “pig” a few times – and now he signs that, too!
And he signs “bread”. He’s been signing it for some time, too – we just didn’t know that’s what it meant!
So we re-doubled our signing efforts now! Very exciting stuff!
