You can extend the sign, by using it in conjunction with colors. For example, blue clothes or red clothes. As baby gets more advanced, you can also move from the general word clothes to more specific words like pants.

    I love your website. My daughter and I are learning a lot! I am curious about how to sign my daughters name instead of spelling it out. Her name is Avery.

    Thank you,

    ADMIN – Hi Veronica,

    Why don’t you try the sign for baby plus the letter A?
