As promised, a fabulous giveaway to celebrate passing the '150 fans' mark on the MPP facebook page!
If you've been following along for a little while now, you may already know how much I LOVE baby signing with my little peas!

My girls are both extremely verbal for their ages, and I credit this to baby signing.
Research shows that using baby signs reduces crying and frustration because babies can tell you exactly what they need; scaffolds language development and results in wider vocabularies; and increases IQ in the long term. (Check out the Baby Signs website to read about more benefits of baby signing!) And I can personally attest to the first two of those claims, at least!

Linda Acredolo, one of the original baby signs researchers, co-author of the book, Baby Signs: How To Talk To Your Baby Before Your Baby Can Talk, and co-founder of Baby Signs and the Baby Signs Institute, has generously offered a Baby Signs Complete Starter Kit (pictured at the top of this post) to one lucky Mama Pea Pod reader!
Here's how to enter:
1) If you haven't already done so, become a follower of Mama Pea Pod on Google Friends Connect, Facebook, Twitter, and/or Networked Blogs (each counts as an individual entry, so you can enter up to four times!)
2) After doing part 1 above, leave a comment below for each entry with your email address to contact you if you win - while you're at it, feel free to share what games or activities you do with your baby to stimulate language development!
Entry is open to residents of the Continental US only (i.e., not Hawaii), and closes on July 20th. The winner will be chosen through Random.org.
Good luck in the draw, and happy signing!
