With our first daughter, we taught her how to sign in order to communicate with us when she was a baby/toddler. Nothing is more frustrating than a baby wanting something and can’t tell you what they want so they either cry or point. As month went by, Camryn would communicate “more” and “eat”. A few other signs came into her vocabulary such as horse, thank you, cookie, banana, grandma, grandpa.
By the time she was 2, we decreased the signing as her vocabulary increased. But one thing she still does is the “I love you” sign. This cookie is dedicated to my first daughter, Camryn, who taught us that signing is a beautiful language.
