I get asked if the girls know Spanish every once in a while. Here at home you don't here much Spanish at all. Of course I don't know Spanish (I should learn but haven't) and Jorge goes into English mode since he is around me. The type of satellite TV we have broadcasts almost all the shows in English. But, the girls to do over to Jorge's family's house several times a week. Since they only speak Spanish over there, the girls have picked up on it just fine. There doesn't seem to be any communication problems.
Bella uses some Spanish on a regular basis. Some words she commonly uses:
aqui for here
esta for this
papos for shoes
si for yes
mida (sp) for look -- this one you hear ALL the time
There are others but these are the ones that come to mind.
Emily is trying to count. She only says two and three, but in Spanish. You will here her sweet little voice, "dos, tres, dos". She will repeat two.
It is hard to get a video of the girls doing anything because they want to "see it". That is all I hear usually when I am trying to video them. It is a small digital camera with a screen on the back to view the pics/videos. So, this is pretty good that Bella was cooperating with me.
