There are some pretty fun and educational classes for babies to join here in New Zealand. Since birth.
B and I had gone to Sign A Rainbow session last week. It’s all about communicating with your baby and vice versa through sign language, much before they say their first words. And I must say, since it was my first class for any such classes, I was pretty impressed. it was a 45 min class full of fun. reading books, singing songs through signing. Playing with props used in the stories, playing games and developing their early language skills. Kelly, the director had composed a fun baby course that babies can enjoy and learn. I think once the baby learns some important hand gestures, he/she can use it to communicate with parents instead of crying and parents just trying to guess what the baby wants!
I sure am doing some signing with my B and i think he is trying to get what it means. Like when his feed is over, I sign with him and he then just smiles at me (instead of still crying and asking where is my fooddd??). It will take some time for him to sign too but I guess with time he’ll do it too! 🙂
Good work Kelly!
P.S. you can always go to Sign A Rainbow on Facebook and find out more about this.
… with my baby!!
Yes yess you read it right…my baby! my 5 month old naughty son! my lil B!
OMG i am finally blogging again after almost 6 months…so much has changed..
The past 6 months have made me a mummy, i’ve learnt to cook meals in 40 mins (yea my son’s naps are exactly 40 mins long!), my sleep has reduced by half (literally), its now nappy bags instead of clutches, our weekend trips are now to baby-friendly destinations, my hair have the sweet scent of baby milk and saliva, i don’t remember when was the last time i saw my house clean, i love the 40 mins of silence in the house, it just takes me 10 mins to get ready now… i think the list will go on and on, but all said and done, this is a time i wont exchange for anything else! the way B smiles when he sees his parents after he wakes up, his screams of joy, his blabberings, his laughter when we play peek-a-boo..everything is simply amazing!
it is soo true when they say life changes after a baby enters your life. all our work and outings now revolve around B and according to his timings. haha my life before B now seems so boring. everyday is an adventure and trial with B. and it’s already 6 months of this madness. Yea my B is going to turn a half year next month! wow time flies so fast. and yes i am planning something for that day too. Any ideas??
ok i think i hear B talking to his teddy bear. his 40 mins are over and so are mine. gotta go but will surely write more often now. feels so good to be back to blogging! 🙂
