Tender Moment Deaf Grandma Teaching Sign Language to her 9 wk old Deaf Grand baby




Grandmas are the best! There is no debate about it. It is true especially when we have just had our baby. Our moms are always there and know exactly the right thing to do to calm our baby. We may or may not like it but it is very true.

Babies have a special bond to grandmas. Six to nine weeks is when a baby usually starts making noises to mimic us and try to communicate with us. I remember my mom talking to my third daughter and she would get all excited and coo back. I could watch that video all day long. When I saw this video it touched my heart in a special way.


Our bond is not stopped because we cant hear or see as our love transcends all barriers. This video shows how the grandma so lovingly signs to the baby and helps her to sign back. Though she is not ready you can see the joy her grandma’s touch gives her.

Here is the Transcript of the video

Both of them are laughing.
“I’m funny?” *tickles Aria’s cheek*
