Signing for babies
This is a little off topic. But my cousin here in the UK is deaf and so is her husband and the most amazing thing is that her daughter of 8 years old learnt to sign the alphabet and also many words without ever being shown, she just picked it up over the last year or two. Both parents speak to their children, and also lip read very well. It is amazing what children do learn in the very early years and even a slightly later on in their childhood.

the more things you will know.

because those who mind don't matter
and those who matter don't mind."
