-These are some signs that you'll use at meal time. Hungry, like the food going down, hungry. Thirsty, swallowing a liquid, thirsty. More, I want more and finished and all done. I like. Your thumb and your middle finger, open out your chest and pull out the clothes, I like. And if you don't like it, take it or throw it away, I don't like it. I don't like it. I like it and I don't like it.
Once you get comfortable signing single words, try these common short phrases.

Bath like you're scrubbing your body, bath up and down, just pointing up and down. Change-- changing your diaper, just twisting your fists change. And the most important one, I love you.
