Clapping and Pointing

Well, it's not signing but Dashiell has been clapping and pointing.  In this way he is communicating with us.  It is so much fun to see him pointing at the things he sees.  When he points we say the word of the thing we think he is pointing to.  The other night we went for a walk and his little hand was in the air the whole time pointing at trees and houses.  He's so cute!

He loves to clap too! He likes "If You're Happy and You Know It!".  We listen to a CD in the car and there is a clapping song that he always joins in.  I can see him in the mirror in the backseat clapping his chubby little hands. 

This is a great age to start signing because I know he has the ability to use his hands to communicate with us.  He isn't picking them up as quickly as his sister but we haven't been as enthusiastic with signing as we were with him. 

I am committed to signing with him and will try to find ways to incorporate the signs and remind myself to sign with him.

I found that all three of my boys signed so differently. My first didn't sign much, he was very laid back. My second was on the needier side and was signing sentences by 12 months. With my third we didn't start until he was 12 months, but he picked them up right away, although he wasn't as enthusiastic about it as my second had been.
