Rita's welcome-baby shower.

This will not interest you if your not into:
- deaf culture
- baby showers
- these people personally
The guest of honor:
Mostly this is for Yesenia who couldn't actually make it to Rita's welcome-baby shower because her own two boys (out of three) where sick. *We missed ya!*

Virginia is holding the almost-two-month old baby we welcomed today, and you will see a sort of "spanglish" signed with both ASL and Mexican Sign Language.







This was a SMALL event. Both Rita and Virginia grew up going to Rancho Sordo Mudo where they teach a sort of ASL, I guess that would be their 'first' language. Next to sleeping beauty you see her brother. It is my opinion that they look exactly alike!

Oh, and even though both their parents are deaf, both these kids are 100% hearing, in case you were wondering.

Precious! I just love sign language...I love the wonderful facial expressions...it's just wonderful! I sat here smiling all the way though this video...a sweet little baby, the joy of receiving gifts...all so sweet. Thanks so much for sharing. I've bookmarked you and will be back soon!

Very interesting! Those babies are adorable! And, I love to see the sign language. The mother received lots of nice gifts, and both she and her friend seem so sweet.
