Teaching Babies Sign Language

January 9, 2010

Cyndi taught Austin sign language when he was little. She is planning to teach little Abby sign language, too. The 1/6/10 Oregon City News had a lengthy article called A sign of success for babies about Shira Fogel teaching parents how to teach their toddlers sign language.

Advantages of signing with your baby from the article:

• It is a fact that babies can acquire the ability to understand language long before the muscles in their mouth enable them to actually speak.

• Research proves the gap between comprehension and speech production can be bridged by using sign language.

• Sign language helps provide an earlier foundation for language development.

• Sign language has been scientifically proven to raise IQs an average of 12 points higher than non-signing children.

• Even when children start speaking, their words are often very difficult to understand; sign language provides an additional clue to help toddlers tell you what they are trying to say. This helps tremendously in minimizing the “terrible two’s.”

Abby Coming Soon!

December 27, 2009

Austin is about to get his new baby sister Abby soon! The birthing process is coming along! Cyndi and Aron have just finished cleaning up the last of Christmas – that is to say, undecorated the tree and got it out to the curb. Now the house is all ready for the new baby. The plan is we are all going to go to Olive Garden for lunch! It worked eating Italian for Austin to decide to be born. Maybe it will work for his new sister, too! Cyndi also expected Abby would come the day we were planning to go back to Reno – that be tomorrow! We’ll let you know!!

June 18, 2009

A friend at work showed me a very creative and informational website for new parents-to-be called She knows I’m interested in such things since my daughter is awaiting her second child. The article on “How Big is Baby” compares the baby size to fruit and tells whats going on for that time frame. Very interesting!!
