It was such a lovely surprise to see Etel and the Sign Shine babies in action. Their enthusiastic hands were priceless. I'm proud to be a part of the SignShine family! Now that the word is out, let's all move our hands to sing and communicate!! My Best to All...Andrea T.

SignShine on NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams

What if babies could communicate what they want, without speaking or even crying? The latest trend in parenting is teaching toddlers, who have normal hearing, to communicate by sign language. NBC’s Robert Bazell reports:

MORE than words can say...

Alex, 10 months, and mom just graduated from our Baby Signing I class with etel. Mommy Karen is so generous to share with YOU this special moment; Alex's first sign.
I love Karen's laugh, you can feel the amazing bond between Alex and mommy.

We are SO proud of you Alex!! Mommy and Daddy, thank you for sharing this precious video with us.

"I just wanted to share the story of Alex's first sign. He just turned 10 months and he's been imitating things that I do and sounds that I make lately. (Clapping, kissing, coughing, yelling, short words, laughing, and yes, even burping.) I've been asking him if he wants more when I've been feeding him and doing the "more" sign. He started copying me on Tuesday and I made sure to quickly give him more of his food. He finally got it that whenever he did the sign, he would quickly get more food. I wasn't sure at first that that was what he was doing because he doesn't use his looks more like a clap but he does it very purposefully and just does it 2 or 3 times. (It kinda reminds me of somebody trying to use "The Clapper".....ha ha!) He may think that it means he "wants" something because he did it today when I asked him if he wanted his milk. I am very excited that he's wanting to communicate with me and he seems very excited too that I understand him! I'm so looking forward to his next signs....Thanks again to Etel for a great class!

Karen and Alexander ;)
