signing question

Hi guys, I haven't been on here in a while. I have a new baby! His name is Alec. As you may or may not remember, my daughter, Ellie, is HoH. We decided not to sign with her because, with her aids, she has pretty good hearing, and we want her to be as verbal as possible. Alec has very good hearing, but we want to do baby signing with him. They say that some of the most basic signs are "mother" and "father", but since Ellie is such a big part of his life, we decided to teach him "sister" as well. Ellie loves signing with him, so we want her to know "brother", too. The ASL browser here: http://commtechlab.msu.edu/sites/aslweb/browser.htm
doesn't have the sign for "brother". Is it just the L from the forehead coming down to meet the other hand, which is also shaped like an L? The description of "brother-in-law" is that "The signs for Brother and Law are combined", which is really not much help.
