I’m a girl!

We’ve been working with Bing-Bing on sign language using Signing Time videos quite a bit.  She loves these and it’s about the only TV we’ll let her watch.  Anyway, she’s been learning a song about boys and girls to learn the sign for boy and girl.  Also, we’ve been learning about the parts of the body, often in the bathtub.  When she started touching her private parts we told her these are her girl parts.  In the tub, I often ask her where her nose, eye, ear, girl parts, foot, hand, etc are.  She loves this – quite naturally.  I also add in a little personal safety awareness by telling her that the only time other people should touch her girl parts are when they are giving her a bath or changing her diaper.  So, this morning Bing-Bing and Daddy were watching Signing Time and the boy-girl song came on.  The ASL sign for girl involves taking your fist with your thumb out and dragging it down from your ear to your chin.  Guess what Bing-Bing did?  You guessed it — she grabbed her crotch like a stereotypical Italian dude.  Later, I was singing and signing the boy-girl song with her to practice and I was doing the ASL sign for girl and sure enough, she did the Bing-Bing sign for girl – grabbing her crotch.  That’s my girl!  Heh.

Here’s a few pictures from yesterday at the park.  It’s been a beautiful weekend!
