Can you understand the baby sign language?

I'm a mother to a 14 month old baby and it's so wonderful to see him growing and learning new things everyday. I noticed that he has many things to say but can't speak instead he wave his hands when he wants me to come near, he open his arms when he wants me to cuddle him and he always opens his mouth and put his fingers like if he's chewing it to tell me that he's hungry. He also cries when he wants a diaper change and he's likely to turn on the t.v. set when he wants to sleep. Being a mother is really hard but fulfilling.

I understand just what you are saying, motherhood is hard but so rewarding. I had my children at a young age and that allowed me to grow up with them. As they now are 17,15 and 8 , It's scary to see that they are becoming young Adults. I love forward to becoming a grandmother, when my children are older and married. If I could afford it I think I would have a million children because I love them so much.

Wow congratulations! You are now a graduate from being a mother. And you know what? being a mother is a 24 hour job and a seven days a week labor. So I think it's the best job in the world! That was a nice story, thank you for your comment.

I am wishing to become a mother too but I am not blessed with that kind of blessing. I guess we are not ready yet. Sometimes I feel like I want to give up already but reading stuff like what you have in your discussion makes me excited so I guess I'll exercise more patience and wait.

Yes dear, when you have children you outlooks in life change. You become more understanding and patient. And you know what, it is the happiest moment of my life when I get pregnant and take care of another human being inside me. I really feel that my husband and me united to become one with our child. And I cant forget the first time I held them in my arms, their tiny hands i kissed as it touches my face. I can't help myself not to cry. God is so wonderful. Be patient in waiting for your baby. And I assure you it will bring you endless joy that cant be explained by words and phrases.

Yeah, I can understand your wonderful feeling of seeing a baby growing up and also learning different things everyday. I have a going-to-be 20 months old son, though he doesn't really speak, he will always show me what he wants by using body language, baby language or one or two words. I suppose when we take care of the baby, we'll understand the baby sign language. It's really great to be a mother.
