As with all her predecessors, we all derive great delight from Claire’s first wakings.  This morning I enjoy a shining episode.  For well over fifteen minutes she is by the warm air, lying quietly on her back and making a brand new noise with the softest, sweetest voice.  “Da-da-dda-dad….,” she says, pointedly and repeatedly.  Note that we don’t think she’s actually speaking English.  It’s just another consonant that she’s getting her tongue around.  But I fancy, or rather feel quite sure that she’s aware of a change, and glad to be sharing it with me.
