Months ago I bought a book Babytaal (baby signs). It’s about communicating with your baby using sign language.
When I tried it A. was about 9 months, and me signing just resulted in laughter from her.
These days A. points if she wants something. Easy if the object of her affection is in sight. Not so easy to guess if it’s not. While she was pointing vigoriously at something, and me holding up everything I could see, I remembered the signs.
No whole stories yet, but today we learned EAT and DRINK. She already ordered her first drink.
