Our Trilingual baby

Maya has always been very talented when it comes to learning languages.
Her first baby babbles were in all three languages: English, German and Russian.

Over the last year (she is two and a half now) her English has become excellent. I guess it is the easiest language out of the three, plus it is spoken at home all the time.

Since I often switch back and forth from English to Russian, Maya is perfectly aware that I speak both.
So, the other evening when we were reading some Russian books, she asks me in English where her yogurt is. I answer in Russian: “твой йогурт в холодильнике.” She goes: “Mama, what did you just say? “and starts laughing…I repeat, dada says: “Your yogurt is in the fridge.” Mama says: “твой йогурт в холодильнике.” She looks at me with a big smile on her face and says, but mama also says: “Your yogurt is in the fridge.”
What a cheeky little monkey our baby is.
