Becca will ask for “apple” when she wants an apple or is hungry. She also said, “more” when she wanted more spaghetti. When she was finished, she just turned the bowl upside down and placed all of her spaghetti on top of it– I guess she doesn’t know “enough” or “done” quite yet.
This morning when I asked her to find her shoes, she ran into our bedroom and brought her shoes to me (very sweet). Later today, she neglected to tell me that I had put on her diaper incorrectly which resulted in a diaper explosion and an unexpected bath for her. So there are still some gaps in her ability (or willingness) to communicate with us.
Although Becca has begun to name or ask for things, she is more likely to echo what we have just said. I have begun to feel as if I am travelling around with a small parrot. Since she is hearing mostly English, she is currently speaking mostly English. She does have a few Spanish words (arribe, agua, gato) and I notice that when we make an effort to speak to her in Spanish she will respond (at least with the same frequency as she does in English).
¡Hasta luego mis amigos!
