Hola, Maebry.

Lucy has been asking what language Maebry will speak when she learns to talk.  Will it be English, Spanish, French?  This began a discussion about language acquisition.  I told her that Maebry will learn to speak the language we speak because that's what she will hear and therefore repeat.  I wasn't sure where she was going with these questions, but I could see the wheels turning in her head.
A little while later, I found Lucy, nose to nose with Maebry, saying loudly, "Maebry, UNO, DOS, TRES, QUATRO...."  
She's bound and determined that Maebry is going to speak Spanish. :)
