With much seriousness, N asked last night as we were getting ready for bed "What if Lydia only speaks Spanish? How will we EVER know what she is saying?"
It obviously was a big concern of his, so I was glad that he brought it up. I explained that babies learn the language that are spoken around them, so when she started to speak, she would speak English as we do.
Today C was working on a spelling page that was about the short vowel "a". The last exercise on the page had a box for them to draw something that they were thankful for, and the idea was they were to pull one of the words from the page and illustrate it. Instead, he chose to draw and write "Lydia" and told me "That's okay - since Lydia has a short "a"! Good thinking, C!
Um, I guess the cat is out of the bag with this post as to what we are naming the babe. I'm sure I'll switch over to "L" as time goes by. Her middle name is still up in the air, but leaning strongly towards Jane after my sister. Also considering Rose bc that is my middle name.
