OMG - dd1 just asked me a proper question!

A real proper one! grin

I was sitting with dd2, showing her a new baby arrival card I got this morning form my brother & SIL

"look, dd2, it's a picture of your cousin. Uncle XXXX's baby, blah, blah, etc"

<appreciative noises from dd2, more about the card than the baby>

dd1 wanders up, and says "it's a baby. where's my photos of school?" shock shock shock

AND then, when I told her where they are (upstairs, on top of the piano) she went off to find them.

shock shock and grin grin grin

her first proper, contextual question grin

thanks everyone. it's such a small thing really to get so excited over, but it is massive for dd1 (and by extension me).

the bit that got me really excited was that her intonation was absolutely spot on. It was a casual enquiry, and she said it in such an offhand "oh, that reminds me, I've been meaning to ask" kind of way.

It was only after she'd trotted off to get them that I realised just how natural a conversation it had been, iyswim.

That's great !! As you say so normal/natural yet so profoundly important in language development

Woohoo, well one silvertadpole grin

DS2 has finally managed to start asking WHO's that as opposed to the What's that when we are meeting new people. Makes all the difference!
