My parents aren't sure what to use as my name sign. Usually a name sign is given to someone by another deaf person. It is most often the first letter of the name combined with a trait of the person. So maybe M for Mommy combined with the sign for crazy (just kidding Mommy). Since I am not old enough to give myself one my parents have gone back and forth on what to use. Initially, the thought they would use the letter P with the sign for peanut since they call me peanut a lot. Then they saw that the sign for nut could be considered offensive (flicking the front tooth out away from the body). Since I am certainly a princess, Mommy thought that might work. It is like making the sign for a beauty contestant's sash. So my parents could combine the sign for P with the princess sign. What do you all think?

  1. I think this is the GREATEST sign ever, and fits you perfectly!

    You are definitely a princess, and I think this is a much better fit than "peanut". I will practice this sign so that I have it down pat by the next time I see you! I will work with Jackson so he's ready to sign also!

    Big kisses!!!

  2. Princess sounds perfect!I'll bet it
    was nice to have mommy home again!
