Firstly I would like to wish all the Dads out there a Happy Fathers Day this weekend!  We here at Baby Hands hope you all have a lovely relaxing day with your family. 

This newsletter sees the end of winter and the beginning of spring.  Spring is a time of new beginnings and maybe it’s the time to reignite your baby signing at home or in the childcare centre. 

September is also a time for school holidays and so our article for this month is about Baby Sign & Travel to show you ways to entertain your children with baby sign language when travelling.

Find Us On FacebookI must admit we have been a little slow with doing anything with our Facebook Page, though we set it up over two years ago it's kind of sat dormant and no-one really knew about it.

Well we've been in and dusted it off with some new information so I would love it of you could help spread the word about Baby Hands by heading over and liking the page.

Also please write us a review while your there and check out the Free Baby Sign Classes and tell your friends.

Your Stories:

"Hi Jackie,

I just thought I'd let you know that we started baby sign with my 13 month old only a couple of weeks ago because we noticed how much she mimicked us. She now consistently signs about ten words and uses them all in context (some have sounds that go with them). My favourite is the sign for "finished" which she does when she doesn't want anymore food or we finish reading a book. She does the sign and says "shin'shd" at the same time. It's gorgeous!

I've found that she is very interested in picking up the signs for animals as she loves describing what she can see, more than signing the day-to-day practical things! My sister is training to be a sign language interpreter so she got us started and although I wasn't really interested to begin with, it is now so much fun watching her learn and being so proud of herself
