One Child’s Language: at 10 months

She enjoys music very much, knows that it comes from the cassette player (home) or the stereo (Grandpa’s house), claps hands, “dances” (by rocking back and forth), or bangs on the table when the music starts. She often sits down to look at books while music is playing.

She has begun to recognize familiar questions and phrases, for example: Where is Daddy/the puppy/the teddy bear book/the jingle bell block/the ball/your toe? Drink water. How big are you? Stretch. Let’s go out.

UPDATE: This child is now a 24-year-old teacher in Boston Public Schools.
