There are only a few weeks left until Christmas! Time flies with a two-year-old, and sometimes it seems like there won't be enough days to enjoy all of the wonderful aspects of the season. From finding and decorating a tree to the emergence of our infamous Christmas Pig, there are so many fun activities to share with the family. Our very excited little one is using her holiday signs now, some of which she actually remembered from last year when she was only 18 months old. It's never too early to incorporate signs into your baby's day. All you have to do is sign it when you say it! Baby brains are primed to learn language and even if their mouths aren't ready to speak or their hands aren't ready to sign, they will begin to understand the meaning of the words they see and hear . Here are some Christmas signs to get you and baby started. The video from ASL That shows the movements of these signs and many more great Christmas words!
