I can not emphasize how wonderful baby-signs are.
Minna told me she wanted another bite of broccoli (yes!), and cookie (no, sorry). She asked me where her Daddy was and told me she wanted out of the tub with no crying or fit-throwing. With a little flourish of her tiny hands she can communicate and I can understand what is going on in her busy brain. It's priceless, plus unbelievably adorable when those chubby fingers form "more", "all done" or "dog".
We are working on "thank-you" and "bird" so we will see what she has to say. If only I could get good shots of them all.
Those hands are lightning-quick!
