I was so pleased to find this website! I have an aunt that is hearing impaired and I wanted my children to be able to communicate with her. I have taken an interest in educating my children in other languages and this one is very important to our family. My 2 year old has found sign language very interesting. He uses it quite frequently and I am so proud of him. He signs “more”, “eat”, and “mama” so often that he rarely even says those words as much any more. My other 2 children have picked up other words and are attempting to use them on a daily basis. They seem to enjoy a challenge and this is a good challenge for them. They also seem to compete with each other to see who can learn the most words. YAY FOR MY BOYS!!!!!
