Twin baby boys show mommy their words and sign language

June 7th, 2021

Babies can easily melt the heart of parents.

There are developmental milestones that parents usually observe in their babies, and they get too excited when their children can reach a particular one. From recognizing the mother’s voice to talking, and everything in between, these are all quite thrilling for parents.

After the babies learn how to stand and walk, the parents cannot wait for their babies to communicate with them properly. A baby’s cry can be interpreted in so many ways, and parents keep guessing what the baby is trying to say. Hence, learning some vocabularies can contribute to much easier communication between parents and babies.

Parents often teach their children the animal sounds and those simple words that can help them understand their needs better – like when they need food, they pooped, or are thirsty.

Most of the time, babies come up with their own words for things, and parents realize their meaning sooner after hearing those sounds multiple times.

In the video, the mom and dad are teaching their 15-month-old twin boys some words and refreshing what they have already learned. The boys also communicate using sign language.

Before going to bed, the parents had a practice session with their twin boys. They looked so cute in their jammies with the words “Mommy’s Monster” printed on their shirts.

Axten and Rayden focus their attention on mom and dad for a little practice on words they’ve learned.

Their mom begins asking them to repeat some words. These babies are smart, and they can follow. They can say names of people and animals familiar to them. Their tiny voices just sound so cute!

Adorable signing skills

Like most parents, they have taught their babies sign language for easy communication for basic words like “eat.” When their mom asks them about the sign language for “eat,” little Rayden (the one on the right) quickly demonstrates it by putting his fingers inside the mouth.

Mom also asks them the sign language for “cold.” Axten demonstrates a shivering action as a response.

What about when they get thirsty?

Mom has also taught them the sign language for “drink” if they want milk or water. Axten shows off the sign for “drink” and says it at the same time. He is still attentive to mommy, while Rayden has gotten a little distracted by the monsters on his jammies.

There are several advantages when you teach your baby to sign.

Dr. Jay Hoecker affirms that baby sign language “can be an effective communication tool.” This can also be one fun activity to do when parents bond with their babies. He explains on the Mayo Clinic website,

“Limited research suggests that baby sign language might give a typically developing child a way to communicate several months earlier than those who only use vocal communication. This might help ease frustration between ages 8 months and 2 years – when children begin to know what they want, need, and feel but don’t necessarily have the verbal skills to express themselves.”

These two adorable tots can make you smile until you finish the video.

Mom quizzes them further. For “all done” and “bath,” they say and sign it together. Axten and Rayden have a good memory of what their parents have taught them. The sign language has been useful to their parents while they are still learning to talk.

Then mom asks them if they still remember “head, shoulders, knees, and toes.” Well, Axten remembers it and knocks on his brother’s head. He has been playfully doing this several times in the video.

But, it’s good that they listen to mommy when she asks to kiss the other as an apology.

Cuteness overload

Mom gives them a short quiz on animal sounds. She asks,

“What does the chicken say?”

Well, Axten responds, “mmm.” Pretty funny alright! Though it’s not really the sound that a chicken makes, we all know how delicious a fried chicken can be, and the little boy’s exactly right.

A little later, Rayden walks to their bedroom to remind mommy that class is over. He’s feeling sleepy, and he wants to go to bed.
