Zach and his wife Courtney have been teaching their daughter, Madison, how to communicate through sign language while also learning to speak. Naturally, this was essential for the girl so she could talk to her dad.

Courtney sometimes shares videos of her toddler’s learning experience on TikTok. However, it wasn’t until their incident at the mall that Madison “interpreted” for her dad for the first time.

The doting father, whose TikTok username is @oursignedworld, captured the proud moment while his one-year-old tried to communicate.

Previously, an adorable eight-year-old from Greater Manchester, England, Tallulah, went out of her way to make a delivery man, Tim Joseph, happy.

While going around the mall, little Madison stopped in the middle of the aisle and tried to inform her father that a baby was crying nearby through sign language. Zach shared:

“She dropped what was in her hands, signed baby crying and pointed! Wow!!!”

“This is truly one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen.”

“Smart little girl,” another said. “She’s learning two languages together, connecting the two languages as she interacts in her world.”

Learning sign language to communicate with a deaf person certainly would mean the world to them and more, especially when it is a child’s sweet gesture.

Joseph, who delivered parcels to their area twice a week, would find it difficult to communicate with Tallulah. Nevertheless, the little girl always waved at him and expressed gratitude. 

One day, Tallulah decided to go the extra mile and learn sign language. When Joseph came, he was taken aback to watch the girl say “Have a good day” in sign language. Certainly, it was a happy moment for both of them.
