A few days ago, Maya picked up an old cellphone, held it up to her head and said “Hi! Hi!” And I was really impressed, thinking wow, she’s learning really fast.
Of course, a few minutes later, she held a stuffed animal up to her ear, looked at me and said “Hi!”
Well, OK then.
Since then she’s answered our phone, more stuffed animals, her baby monitor, two socks and a box of cereal. So there’s work left to be done, but am willing to call this progress.
