Back in Nebraska, and some news!

I know I've broken every rule of blogging by not updating the blog for five months, and I apologize. But I do have a very good reason for not blogging, which I was not at liberty to post in June. I am happy to announce that my husband and I are expecting our first child sometime near the end of January! During the summer, I was suffering from debilitating nausea, which was worse if I used my computer, so my computer got a summer vacation this year. I am finally starting to feel better, but now classes are in full swing, so I'll do my best to update regularly from here on out.

In light of our news, today's post is a TED Talk by Dr. Patricia Kuhl, discussing how infants are born with the ability to learn any language in the world, but by 10 months, their brains have been trained to ignore sounds not in their ambient language. So now I'm wondering how many languages I can expose baby to in the 6-10 month window. :)
