Signs

I sing this song at least once a week.
I can rarely even hear the word "signs" without getting it stuck in my head. 
However,
this post is not about Tesla. 
It's about Alice.

She's been a signing machine lately!
Seems like she picks up on 1-2 everyday. 
Crazy.

So, because this is my scrapbook,
and because Alice's baby book is only about 1/2 filled out,
And because my memory is worthless,
I'll make a list of the signs she knows here.

honk the horn 
(not an official sign. acts like she's pulling the horn in a semi)
I know there's more,
but that's all I can think of right now.

It's so fun to see her language go crazy!
She loves to point out objects in books.
We say, "where's the __", and she points to it.
Then!
The other day, she was looking at a book and signing the pictures she saw.
Like she was reading, but with signing.

Okay, I'll stop there.
All moms think their babies are smart.
I am no exception.
It's just so neat to see her little brain working.

Here's a video from a couple weeks ago.
Warning: 
unless your Alice's grandmother or great-grandmother, 
you probably won't want to see it.
2 minutes of watching a mom quiz her kid=
annoying. 
I know.

Wow! That is so fun to see! My son signs "All Done" but I wish I had stuck with it better. You have inspired me ;) Way to go Alice!!

Fantastic! Way to go Alice! I tell you what...those Baby Signing Times videos are a gem! Katelynn and Adam learned how to talk by learning to sign first, then signing with verbal language. Eventually, they dropped the signs and kept the language. They still sign sometimes when we can't understand what they are trying to say. Awesome!
