Aurora signs "more"

Have you ever heard of signing for baby. I first heard of it when I hosted a quilt teacher last year. She told me that she signed with her baby half a dozen words. She couldn't talk enough of the benefits of communicating, just that much further with her baby.

Well, it just so happens that Michelle, my sister's daughter, and Aurora's Godmother, bought a "Teach your baby to sign" kit last summer. So Patience has been teaching A. the first sign is "more". The sign is where you clap/tap your fingertips together in front of you. Patience has been practicing with A for a couple of months.... and this week, A has been doing more at least 4 or 5 times a day. We're not sure what she wants more of but it's very recognizable. She's also sending kisses and knows how to "ta ta". Try to get a picture of any of these things.... it's impossible, but we're trying.
