Our son was 8 months old when he started signing, and was really quick to pick new signs up. One of our favorite signing stories was from around this time last year – Halloween. We had been reading a book with our then 15 month old about Halloween and some of the signs that went with it, one of them being ‘Scared’. About a week before Halloween I decorated the house one night after he had already gone to bed. The next afternoon while having his playtime he suddenly started crying, and at first I wasn’t able to figure out why. Finally, our little guy signed ‘Scared’ for the first time, and pointed to a mummy decoration I had placed out!! I was amazed that he was able to communicate that, and put the mummy away which he was clearly happy about. We love signing with our son, and LOVE My Smart Hands! ~Kristen and Jack
