Watch This Grandma Teach Her Deaf Infant Granddaughter How to Sign




From Woman's Day

All grandparents have a special bond with their grandchildren, but perhaps no bond is tighter than the one between 5-month-old Aria and her grandmother Pamela McMahon, who both happen to be deaf.

Pamela immediately began communicating with her infant granddaughter through sign language; when Aria was 9 weeks old, her mom, Shari Joy McMahon, captured one of their bonding sessions on video, and posted it to Facebook. The clip now has nearly 1 million views, and once you watch it, you'll understand why. Aria is completely mesmerized, grinning nonstop as Pamela shows her various signs.

"Aria is almost five months old now and she hasn't been signing lately but always 'listens' intently to people signing to her," Shari told Scary Mommy. "She is fifth generation deaf in our family. Almost every member of our family is deaf."

Thanks to her grandma, we're sure Aria will be a natural signer in no time!
