Welcome to our April Newsletter. Happy Easter to you all!

We are currently on our honeymoon and have just celebrated Easter in my home town in Ireland. It was lovely to be back but I am looking forward to coming back home to some warmer weather.

Personally this has been a very exciting month for me travelling around on honeymoon exploring new and exciting places.

Monthly Article Section:

This month as I am on honeymoon, we will not be having our regular monthly article. However, I would love to hear your ideas on what articles you would like to see in this section moving forward.

Check out all the article listings from previous newsletters here or the latest blog posts listed on the right.

Your Stories:
Thanks very much to Silve for sending in her baby sign story regarding her son Hamish.

"Hi Jackie, great to read that so many people are interested in baby sign.

In my case i need to stay one step ahead of my little man, who i can't believe is turning one next week. We have been signing with him since he was 9 weeks old. At seven weeks old we found out that he had a severe hearing loss in both ears, so being the pro active parents that we are we started right away.

We have taught ourselves through dvd's and books. We also joined a playgroup with deaf children and have had fantastic support through Auroa.

Hamish signs many signs now, Morning, Mummy, more, finished, milk, bye/hello, blows kiss, bath and really trying to babble with signs also. He has this week started on changing the shapes of his fingers when babbling sign and smiles when he does."

"It is amazing how he communicates with us before even having language to use. Good luck to everyone who takes on this challenge, i have found it extremely rewarding. And I believe that my child has too".
