Hi everyone and welcome to this months newsletter.

I had a good laugh this month when I got emailed about an interview I did for Spanish CNN a few months back and saw myself on TV Espanol completely dubbed in Spanish.

Check it out on our blog here, and if you can speak any Spanish and want to have a go at translating in the comments below please do :)

Monthly Article Section:

We are always talking about the benefits of baby sign so this month we look at 3 Ways To Introduce Baby Sign with your baby.

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

Your Stories:

"Here is a photo of our 18 month old boy Cailen, doing his version of the sign for 'finished'.

I have actually been using a few basic signs for the last few months and the interesting thing is that the one sign he has just started using now, is the main one we have been consistant with.

It just reinforces the need to be consistent with them all the time.

It was such an exciting moment to see him sign back 'finished' when he had finished his meal. But the real exciting thing is when he did it after finishing his bottle at lunch time today!

I think it must be a novelty for him at the moment because he signs it quite often. Also if anyone says the word 'finished' in a sentence he does the sign.

Although he has his own special way of doing it, with his forefinger instead of thumb. It has made me dig out the book and work on heaps more signs now. How exciting for us all!

Thank you Jackie for making communication with our young ones less frustrating!

Kind regards,"
