Ruby has the flu and the benefits of Signing Time

My family has been so sick with the Flu this week.I was hoping Ruby wouldn't get it but she finally did. For Christmas I got her the 'Family,Feelings,and Fun' DVD ,one of the signs on that DVD is the sign for sick.Well,Ruby has been letting us all know how rotten she feels by signing sick when we look at her and she says "kick" with a pouty face. I can't say enough how great the Signing Time video's are for helping with communication and speech.I started sitting Ruby in front of those video's when she was a tiny baby and I have lost count of how many signs she knows now.
Ruby gets so excited when I buy her a new Signing Time DVD.I bought her a new one recently when she had to have tubes put in her ears.I thought it would cheer her up the day of the procedure.I just loved seeing the surprised look on her face.She kept saying "Signs,signs.Watch!" She learns new signs within minutes after starting to watch.

Here are a couple of pics of my sweet sick princess.

Aww, poor kiddo! I hope she is feeling better very soon!

I love Signing Time! and I don't even have kids! I'm 32 and I use it for myself to learn how to sign the basics. Rachel Coleman is terrific. :)
