When I first heard of baby sign language, I'll admit I was a little skeptical. However after my cousin had her baby and told me her own amazing experience of her son signing milk when he was hungry, I became interested in learning more.

In August 2005 my son, Zander, was born. I'd already read a bunch of articles and watched videos on signing with infants and decided to try it out. I signed every word I knew to him and was hooked when at 4.5 months old he signed potty!

Fast forward to when Zander was two years old. He was asking me for something to eat and I had no idea what he was saying. After asking him to repeat it a few times and still not understanding, I asked him if he knew the sign for what he was saying. He brought his cute little hand under his chin and squeezed it together a couple times. Orange! He wanted to eat an orange! There really is something to this!

As I was experiencing the benefits in my own family, I realized a calling to share this with others. I felt inspired to learn all I could and start my own business teaching other parents and care givers this amazing way to get to know their babies. I began by having a signing play group at a local park and when Zander was two years old I started my business Signs at Play! We're now in our eighth year very excited about signing with you all in 2016!

Signs at Play! offers classes from birth to preschool age children, signing story times at San Diego Public Libraries and we even perform at birthday parties! Sign up for our newsletter to be notified of our programs and events. 

Please contact me if you would like to talk further. I look forward to signing with you and your baby!
