What I Miss from the Early Days of Baby Signing

My daughter is 2 1/2 and quickly losing the baby chub and turning into a long-legged girl. Sometimes I still see the baby in her, but not often enough when I'm feeling nostalgic. Like right now.

When we began teaching our daughter sign language, we signed on her body like Signing Smart for Babies and Toddlers recommends. She caught on quickly, and soon she was signing on our faces as well as her own. I loved her soft, pudgy fingers brushing across my cheek to sign CAT. I marveled when she taught a little friend to sign CAT using the same strategy.

Now her fingers are longer. Still soft, but no longer pudgy. And she doesn't sign on our faces anymore.

Update. - After I wrote this post, my daughter signed FARM on my husband's face. Of course, I didn't get to feel her soft fingers, but it was a nice moment to watch.
