  • Anonymous, can you share with me how you taught your 1 year old sign language? I think that my son would catch onto that faster. Thanks!

  • she watches the baby einstein video for sign language and when it shows the signs we show her how to do it with her hands and say the word when she does it and well tell her sometimes say "more" (and do the sign at the same time)

    i also took 2 1/2 years of sign language too so there are some signs not on there that we are trying to teach her. but there are websites that show you the sign and make it easy to teach a baby. baby einstein video is a great one though she actually sits there and wtaches and and enjoys it :)

  • My girl is 13 months old today. She says, Dog/Woof-Woof, Mama/Mom, Dada/Dad, Papou (Greek for Grandpa), No, Go, Mall, Milk, Toe, Hi, Ball, More, Yiayia (Greek for Grandma), Gaapa (Grandpa), Uma (Grandma) Tongue, (If you ask her where is your head, ears, nose, mouth, teeth, tongue, feet, toes - she'll point to the correct body parts) and will wave, nod her head yes, smile and point. She loves to dance too!!! I also taught her basic sign language and she knows more, milk, all done.

  • At 13 months....

    1...had just stared to speak. He said "mama" and "dada". At 18months he was holding full conversations!!! (freaked us out!) His verbal IQ is in the 99.9th percentile. He's now 4.

    2...didn't even start to speak until he was 18 months. He's now 3 and receives speech therapy for a moderate speech delay because of articulation.

    3...just finally started speaking at 22 months. He's now 2 and receiving speech therapy for a severe speech delay in articulation and expressive language.

  • mine says, aaa-pull (apple) but thinks it means hungry! Cracks us up. We cannot convince him to say hungry. If you ask, "are you hungry?" he shakes his head yes and says "aa-pull". He also says mama, dada, nana (banana), bye bye.
