My Son Learned Two Signs In One Day - Toddler Sign Language

(Sheridan, WY)

My aunt had my son for 2 hours and taught him the signs for more and cookie!

I know absolutely no sighn and I noticed he kept touching his fingers together after I asked if he wanted more milk.

Then later that day he kept touching one finger to the palm of his hand then pointing at the cookie cupboard!

I called my aunt and asked and she told me the low down! I really want to start teaching him this its great! He told me he wanted a cookie with no screaming and tantrums!!
