We've been trying to teach Kate and Connor sign language for the word "milk." We've heard sign language can really help little ones to express what they want before they can actually say the words.
So - we looked up the correct gesture (thanks YouTube!) and have been using that sign anytime the twins get milk. Kate had her owns ideas. Instead of using American Sign Language - she used plain old-fashioned sign language. She saw the milk, pointed at it with her finger and shrieked until we gave it to her.
