We are looking at the important people in your FAMILY in our Signing Babies classes this week!

Don’t forget to show your babies how to sign their favourite people they see in person, in photos, on FaceTime or Skype each day, these faces will be so familiar. My babies didn’t sign MOMMY very much because I was mostly always with them, but it was easier for me to show them the sign for DADDY when he walked in the door from work, or GRANDMA & GRANDPA when they visited. I also name everyone in our family photos by pointing at them, then signing who they were.

How do you teach your baby about your family members?
