Gretel has become more and more vocal over the past several months, and we are beginning to understand what she's saying some of the time. She has a lot of simple words like "ball" and "book", "yes" and "please". She also does a fair amount of signing to communicate. She knows "more" and "please" and "eat", etc. Gretel loves to sing and has a repetoir of songs she sings to her babies. Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, and Row, Row, Row Your Boat are amongst the favorites, with Frere Jacques coming in at a close third. She's always surprising us with new songs. Mostly we just get a lot of babble though, which makes us realize she sure has a lot to say! One of these days it will all make sense to us, and we'll finally understand what's been going on in that little head all these months!
