To sign CANDLE, one index finger touches the wrist of the opposite hand. Wiggle fingers to represent candle’s flame.
I can’t believe it’s been 11 years since I put the first candle on my daughter’s first birthday cake. Happy 12th birthday Sirena, and happy birthday Baby Sign Language Basics!
Enjoy every moment, because before you know it, your little baby will be all grown up.

Submitted by signing mom and Baby Sign Language Basics student Andrea, about her son Alejandro today, who took our classes when Alejandro was 10-13 months.
“We’re so glad we taught our child signing. Not just so we can figure out what he is trying to say but because he clearly loved expressing himself.
Right now his favorite sign is “happy”. He signs this all the time. Even though we can tell by his smile and laughter, it clearly makes him happy to let us know he’s happy!”
In this photo, Alejandro is indeed signing “HAPPY”
