Capital letters are used to indicate ASL signs. These are words that are referred to in a signing context – they should be signed. For example, if I say “To teach the sign for BOOK, you simply open your hands palm up with their edges touching.” The word BOOK is to be accompanied by the sign for it. There are many words that should become part of your baby’s vocabulary and these are referred to throughout the site in capitals.
We have made no effort to use male and female pronouns when speaking about babies! We often use the male pronouns because we’re lazy (and maybe because we have a little boy). We understand perfectly that half of the babies are girls, but trying to be politically correct is difficult and exhausting! Our intentions are to be inclusive of all babies.
