I was teaching my daughter little things to help her understand and communicate when she was 6-9 months old. Now she’s 3 and is very hyper active and has a hard time listening to me, so when I sign to her, she stops to look and see what I am doing first, so now she’s getting better with listening and learning sign language, too.
I always wondered if this is the same sign one uses to command someone to wait. I want to tell my baby to hang on for awhile, how do I sign to communicate that? Thank you!
