Yikes, it's been a while since my last post. (Must keep up the writing)
Lately Gavriel Zev has successfully, but still rare and intermittantly been saying "Abba, Abba!!!", followed by looking at me with a be, conspiratorial grin.
That is about it for words these days. Jennifer says he is waiting to speak when he feels he can do it mistake-free. Right now, his vocabulary consists of saying "Da... da....da..." as he looks at some point of interest. I'm guessing the word 'da' means 'that'.
Naomi Rivka lately is being a little more pesty, whenever she notices GZ getting any attention.
Elisheva is crying and dispensing lots of sarcasm lately, especially when she is stressed. (But any and everything stresses 13 year old girls)
Yerachmiel Meir defends every accusation against him as if his life depended on it.
I also learned today that not only does he claim that his school is hellish, but also his home-life with us is equally hellish. (What? I thought we were good parents?? Kind and considerate and all that???) Jennifer says he tends toward hyperbolic statements and she doesn't necessarily beleive him when he is ranting like that.
What to do?
