Sign With Your Baby!

You've certainly heard of people using sign language with their babies.  And perhaps you even know a bit of sign yourself.  But do you know of all the benefits from signing with your children?  We started signing with our children when our son was about 2 years old and our daughter was just an infant.  Both kids LOVE to sign and it's been a fun learning process for our whole family. 

Signing Time and Baby Signing Time DVDs have been a fun and interactive way to learn sign language that our kids continue to enjoy, years later. is a fun way to boost your child's brain growth and early learning! Click here!

The best baby teether!

Sophie the Giraffe.  Absolute best baby teether/toy I've come across.  A friend of mine bought Sophie for her son and I thought she was cute.  I also thought she was a bit expensive for a single baby toy.  However, after seeing how much Sophie was used and loved, I realized how worth the money paid for her she was.  I wound up getting a Sophie of my own for my little girl.  And I have to say, she has been a constant in our household for almost 3 years.  Sophie started out as a teether, then served as an everyday toy, and is now our daughter's "lovey".  And I've seen many other toddlers out there with Sophies that are loved (and chewed) just as much as ours.  There are many different versions of Sophie out there - and she even has some friends (honestly, I can't tell what they are though - they look like an animal-mushroom to me...?!), so choose your Sophie wisely.  Every baby deserves a friend like Sophie!
