My Signing Baby

Shaela saw this photo of herself pop up on my computer the other day and looked at me and signed “your baby.” It was so sweet! Nothing beats being able to communicate with your baby as soon as possible. You would be amazed at what can come out of these little conversations. They truly understand so much more than we give them credit for!

We are offering a mini session of Sign & Sing beginning in August. If you have any questions about the classes please drop me a line at or give me a call 513-4994. I always love to share my experience in signing with children.

Summer 2008 – Great Fun!

We have lots of great summer fun coming your way! The schedule should be up on the website this weekend along with online payment options! Yeah!! Here is your first preview:

All the small exchanges between you and your baby in the first years help him/her feel loved and form a core of your baby’s emotional development and outlook on life and learning. More than just a curious story, Mother Goose games like peek-a-boo help your baby understand language. In this special camp, uncover more ways to say “I Love You” using American Sign Language, soap bubbles and parent-baby dances. Plus, you can meet with other newborns and families in the community and learn how music enhances your child’s total development. This special camp not only helps you strengthen the emotional bond with your little one, but it will help your baby’s musical, language, physical and social development as well. So much more than just a music class. (once a week/45 minute classes)
