My daughter's first sign

My daughter knows a couple signs now, but it is still hard because she often doesn't realize I am identifying something. It should get easier soon, as her spoken language is taking off like a rocket now.

Your daughter is so cute. Love that first sign. Very clear. My daughter's first sign (that I recognized) when she was 12 months old was "light." I also remember her younger brother (who is hearing) at the age of two -- when I did not understand what he was saying (using his voice), I was able to understand him when he signed it. I wish you well on your journey learning ASL. Enjoy.

Precious!! I am hearing but I work with deaf kids, and I remember I was at a house once when I saw the little boy sign WHERE DADDY? I was SO excited.
