stella haz some skillz.

up until the other day i was on the fence about teaching stella some sign language. rowan was a sponge to it when she was her age and subsequently refused to say the words out loud when it came time. so i hesitated. 
then, the other day for the heck of it i started showing stella 'more' and 'all done'- she didn't really catch on till tonight. i totally took me by surprise when after just a few times of showing her when to use it, she picked it right up. those smart babies and their super absorbent brains! it helped that she was earning herself some nom-able bacon pizza.

(ok, i get that she is totally doing 'more' wrong here and very might well be signing something completely different, but were working on it and this is a great start!)
sorry, it is so short!

i think we will limit what we teach her, to avoid what happened with rowan. but i am thinking 'thank you', 'milk' and 'food' would be good ones. any suggestions?

So cute! I love seeing babies sign :) Elliott only knows "please" (and she uses it all the time) but I think we are done.....for the same reasons :)

looks like more to me! i mean if she is doing it the same way every time then thats just the way she does it. but at least she understands, ya know! corbin does his more and all done signs a little different too but he says both when he signs them now. anyways, its so fun to watch her learn stuff! awe, she's growing up...

We use a few signs with Olivia who is 16 months. She knows more, all done, thank you, please, bite... I think that might be it.

She did more the same way Stella does. I'm so mad at myself that I didn't get it on tape because now she does it right.
