Many of you probably know from past posts that Josh and I use sign language with the babies. We have been signing just a few basic signs with them since they were probably somewhere around a year old. Well, about a month ago I decided to start looking for some videos for the babies. I didn't want just any video...they really aren't into watching TV except when we're in the car going somewhere. They see the TV screens and point. This is going to be a huge asset this summer when we hit the road on vacation. Anyhow, back to the point. I didn't want just any video I wanted something educational. So I decided to do a Google search. I came across the Baby Signing Time as well as "Your Baby Can Read". After checking out these sites I was so excited. I haven't purchased "Your Baby Can Read" ...yet although I have been keeping my eyes on a good deal so I'm sure we will be adding them soon. However, we did buy "Baby Signing Time" and for babies who don't usually pay one bit of attention to the TV, as soon as they hear the music they are running to watch Alex and Leah. They love these videos and so do the big girls. Honestly, I love them too. We watch them a lot. Especially on the road. So here's my testimonial. These videos are amazing. The babies have been watching them for a couple of weeks now and they know TONS of signs. More than I realized. Yesterday, I was playing with the babies and I decided to see if they would show me any new signs. Really I expected Rae to. She signs all of the time, but my Ri she started signing things I had no idea she could sign. Things like play, friend, dog, cat, clean, dirty, yes, no, daddy...I was completely shocked. She has even started speaking more. Rae almost always speaks the words as she signs where Ri tends not to talk "words" as much. Well, that's changing quickly. Today she was saying no, baby and please. Which she also knows the signs for. Tonight I ordered the next 3 volumes. They are going to love them. If you have any interest in teaching your baby or even older child signs you will not be disappointed! Signing time is above and beyond what I had hoped for. I'll try to get video soon. It so cute. Rae's new word/words is Ri Ri. It is so cute. The other morning I was getting ready for work and I could hear Rae saying Ri Ri ...Ri Ri over and over. When I went to get her up Riley was still sleeping. She was trying to wake her sister up. Little Turkey!!
