Wow, is winter over already? I've just arrived back from a couple of weeks in Ireland in the middle of their "blazing" summer, it 'almost' reached 23deg on a couple of days! :)

Always great to go back and see friends and family though and so many new baby's since I was last home which inspired me for this months post Universal Baby Sign.

Monthly Article Section:

So many of my friends and family have had baby's since I was last home it was quite amazing for me to notice how many were actually using sign and they didn't even realise it! See this months post on Universal Baby Sign and why using sign with baby's is such a simple thing to build into your daily routines.

Your Stories:

Hi Jackie,

I have been really enjoying teaching Jack (11 months) sign language so I have ordered the Australian Baby Hands book and it arrived the other day. I was keen to find out more signs that related to everyday things that I thought would be useful.

He can now do the signs for Mum, Dad, eat and finished! It is only the beginning and we are having fun :-) Sometimes I will say a word without realising and he will start signing it! So clever!"

Thank you,
Leslie Vale, Tasmania
