Language Acquisition

Amaya is learning lots of new ways to use words, and a few new words too. Yesterday Pam and I were having a very intellectual conversation while driving to Costco, and suddenly I notice that Amaya is sitting in the back seat saying, "Stupid" over and over again. Yeeeaaaah.
For the last few nights when she wakes up in the middle of the night (yes, she still wakes up in the middle of the night), she stands up and says very sweetly, "Hold you? Hold you?" and I really just can't resist. She cries if I don't get up right away, but usually I do. Darn it.
She's starting to learn how to sing. If I start singing "F is for fun, F is for fun, F is for Fake believe...." (They Might Be Giants video podcast) she immediately starts singing "F-- Fun-- for fun!" and dances around like crazy. Unfortunately I haven't learned any of the other words.
