Re: It has paid off..

I have been signing with DD for a while now and it seemed to take her a long time to start signing back. The first one I recognized was when she did "all done" one day after she was finished eating. It was (heck - it still is!) adorable. WTG mama!

Yay! DD1 learned five or six but never USED them until she could talk.... Now we're trying to start learning them for DD2, and DD1 is having a lot of fun with it. She learns them much more quickly than we do!

Re: It has paid off..

that is REALLY great news. I love seeing the wheels turning in my dd's head and see her figure something out! We tried some sign language as well be she was talking very early and we just didn't need it at that point. Anyway, it is great that you have had some progress with signs. I know they really make a big difference for many families and hope you are able to profit more from all your hard work.

I *really* recommend signing a steady 5 or 6 words at the MINIMUM when you start. When I started with my son, I only used one or two and it took a REALLY long time for him to sign back -- and it was only after I introduced more signs that he started to "get it". I think that he wasn't understanding that my hands were portraying words until I was using them for several different things. Within a couple of weeks, he started signing on a regular basis. Then, I introduced Signing Time a couple of months ago, and his signing vocabulary has literally exploded!
