    I was wondering what the sign is for “lizard” or if there was another alternative sign I could use in place of that?

    Thanks so much!

      Hi Camille,

      To sign “lizard”, lay your non-dominant forearm flat in front of you, palm facing down. Then form the ‘L’ hand with your dominant hand and “crawl” it across your non-dominant forearm, like a lizard crawling on the ground. Cheers.

    Is there a sign for “listen” or “too loud”? I have also been looking for a baby sign for “yummy”. This has been my go to site for baby signs, my little girl started signing at 6 months, so exciting! thank you!!

    ADMIN – Hi Jen,\r\nListen (or hear) is signed by cupping your hand to your ear as if you were straining to listen.

    Loud is signed by touching your finger to your ear then shaking your fists as if you were angry about what you were hearing.

    To day something is yummy or delicious or your favorite, you can tap your middle finger to your chin.
