For years, we have been told that babies that learn to communicate with a combination of speech and gesture may develop larger spoken vocabularies. While this has not been proven true, it does help!

All of this is shown to create a more secure attachment between parents and babies and to allow for more learning opportunities.

I have always had lots of friends. I could make friends sitting at the airport. In fact, that IS how I made one of my best friends.
