River (15 months)
We started at 6 months with ‘milk’, but we knew when I was pregnant that would would be signing with River. I’d done so much research that told me how much of an impact it would have on his development.
It’s been so much easier(is it ever easy?!) to communicate with him, he’s speaking more and telling us what he’s wanting.
To start early! Even if its just a couple signs. The best insight I’ve been given was that they understand much sooner than they can communicate back, so it’s important to sign to them even if they aren’t responding back.
We’ve only used the DVDs to this point, so they’re our, River’s, favorite! He won’t watch anything on TV for more than 30 seconds. He loves Rachel, he requests to watch “Baby”. He just lights up when he hears the music and sees it coming on.
Thank you for sharing, Joscelyn! 🙂
