The Myths About Signing With Your Baby

Today we are pleased to have Kristy from HearMyHandsASL.com guest posting for us.  Hear My Hands recently became one of our sponsors and we are so thrilled to be working with her! Jamie has a special place in her heart for ASL (American Sign Language).  She started learning it in First grade when her elementary school partnered with a school for the deaf a few miles down the road.  Years later, Jamie took ASL as a second language in college.  Unfortunately Jamie has not kept up with her ASL skills and has lost most of it.  She was hoping to teach her girls sign language at a young age but her husband wouldn't let her due to popular myths.  We now have Kristy guest posting for us so that others don't fall into those same myths! Check out Kristy's website HearMyHandsASL.com.  She's got some GREAT info on there and has frequent signs for words up on her blog.  If you're in her area, check out her classes!  Without further ado, here is Kristy...

Please quit trying to put that plastic bug in your sister’s ear – It’s not funny!  If somebody touches somebody else in the next five minutes, I’m pulling this car over! We are making these cookies to give to someone else, you cannot keep licking your fingers in between frosting them… But Monkey Bread is so much fun to make with them. And it’s my kids’ all-time favorite breakfast because it’s sweet, gooey, and fun. What’s not to love? Here’s what you’ll need: 4 … [Read more...]
