I explain to her what the signs mean and how to make them, but she would rather squawk and babble than sign. Or so it seems. Maybe I’m going about it the wrong way. Maybe I’m choosing the wrong words. I’ve started “all done”, but haven’t shown her “more”. Perhaps she would be more interested if the verbs were more active than passive?
I was all geared up to read a book about baby signing, but apparently I’ve misplaced it. I looked in all my stacks of books, and have yet to find it. Maybe my “stacks” aren’t the best choice for being organized. Ah, well, I’d rather hear some real advice about the topic any way.
Do you use baby sign language with your infant? How did you introduce it? Are there any secrets that might encourage Frances to communicate with signs?
