In going through all my old home videos, I found this adorable clip of Jesse when he was about 15 months old. We used to lounge around in bed in the mornings, playing, chatting, teaching him to sign and more. Here you can see him learning to sign ‘Blue Moon’, led by Paula.
Some of the signing isn’t very clear, so here’s a run down of what’s being said:
Paula: Would you like to sing ‘Blue Moon’?
Jesse: (voice) green moon.
Paula interprets this for me, and tries again to convince him to do ‘Blue Moon’, but Jesse insists on calling it ‘Green Moon’.
Jesse starts signing ‘Green Moon’ but doesn’t know all the words, so Paula leads him through it:
You saw me standing alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own.
To everyone who has ever asked me why Paula and I homeschooled Jesse, it’s because it was often like this.
If you think this is cute, feel free to share it 🙂
