Sing & Sign

Coby started a new class on Friday called Sing & Sign. We learnt the signs for five words -'eat', 'drink', ''milk', 'more' and 'all gone'. The lady that runs the class told us to use the signs all the time and eventually our babies will pick them up. She has a child that uses around 200 different signs! It is an easy way for babies to communicate before they are talking and, while it can take some time (from 6 weeks to 6 months), most babies will use some kind of sign language to communicate with their parents. Coby has nearly got the hang of waving goodbye, one down, 199 to go.
