"Bike"

Hayden's not doing it in this picture, but you circle your fists around as if you're riding a bike.

"Floss"

Kinda self explanatory... ;) Also, I'm wondering if I should just change the blog to be called "Sign Every Other Day or So" :) I'm trying to be better at this, I promise!

Catching Up

Sorry for not posting in so long! With Hayden being under the weather, I didn't really have a model for the signs. 

Here's Hayden doing an assortment of signs. "Bus" is taking two fingers and pretending to pull down on the cable for your stop. "Toys" is making a "y" with your hands (putting out your thumb and pinky) and shaking it. "Book" is like you're opening a book. Hayden does, and always has done, his book as opening outward toward us rather than opening it toward himself. He's just silly like that. ;) "I Love You" can be signed by putting our your palm and then closing the middle and ring fingers so that only your pinky, index and thumb are up. That means "I Love You."

"Fish"

This one's a bit hard to see from Hayden, but you just move your hand around like a fish swimming.

"Signing Time"

Use your pointers and circle them around one another to sign "signing/sign."

Point to your wrist and where your watch would be to sign "time."

"Dirty"

video

Put your hand under your chin (Hayden does this one his own way...) with the top of your hand touching your chin. Then wiggle your fingers.

"Bluecat"

video

A shout out to our friends in Coleman ;) Sign blue by make shaking your palm with your thumb in (this is the sign "B") and then sign cat by grabbing at your face where a cat's whiskers are.

"Color"

Wiggle your four fingers at your chin.

"Boy" and "Girl"

video

Boy: grab at your forehead like a boy grabbing his hat. Girl: make a fist and slide it down from your cheek to your chin. (Also, I'm sorry to have skipped another day! I'm really going to try to stay on top of this!...if you're digging this blog, let me know. Help encourage me to stay consistent ;))
