Lili uses about half verbal language and half sign language. THIS video is a great example of it (sorry, I can't figure out how to upload it here...)~ I ask her to say Atticus and she does. I ask her to say kitty and she gives me it in sign. The sign for kitty looks like stroking whiskers. Lil's version reminds me of an Italian chef saying "perfect", or maybe some sort of elegant composer saying "Ta-da".
I can't imagine life without sign right now. I think this might be my #1 recommendationn for new parents. There are tons of baby sign books out there. Lil is particularly loving this one:Although it isn't great for small babies because it isn't a board book.
I have so much gratitude that she can communicate with me in this way.
