Sign of the times

Hayden has picked up a new trick this week: signing. He learned two signs on Sunday that he’s been using off and on this week. He’s not totally consistent, so I don’t have any video or pictures, but here’s what he’s learned:

  • All gone. Nana Diana was feeding him Easter candy for breakfast (I can’t really say anything, since that’s been my breakfast for two weeks now). She told him he couldn’t have any more until his mouth was empty—until it was all gone. He picked up the standard “all gone” sign (very similar to ASL’s “finished” sign)
  • More. That night I was eating candy and gave Hayden a little bit. I got him to sign more to ask for some more.

Of course, his technique isn’t perfect, but I’m just excited that he’s learning one language

I promise he doesn’t eat as much candy as this makes it sound like he does… really….

  1. I just found your blog through the LDS Women’s blog site :) I haven’t had a chance to look through everything here, but it is fun to watch young kids pick up on signs. We got some DVDs for our kids and ourselves to learn and we all love it! :)

  2. Candy never hurt anyone. LOL!

    My daughter has also picked up some sign language recently. It’s amazing the things they learn on their own.

  3. I’m trying to get him to learn “cat,” since the cat’s one of his favorite things in the whole world, but he’s not so interested. If only she had candy…
