I love that when a person speaks to a baby, they naturally return to the language of their heart. I wrote a blog on this a few years back. My dear friend Angelica (who is Spanish) would speak to me in English, but whenever she would talk to Abigail, it was all Spanish. The same is true of Hatice and Sema -- my Turkish friends. Even our tour guide on our trip to Greece reverted to Greek when playing with Abigail. Check out these videos below:

This was confirmed this past week when I got a video of my housekeeper Hita speaking to Hannah.
