I had intended to write this post when I first brought baby E home from the hospital in June but somehow nearly 12 weeks have flown by with barely any time to fit in meals and get the laundry done! Please forgive me.
As I mentioned in my introductory post, "Papa" is speaking to him exclusively in French, I speak to him in Italian when I'm with my husband or alone with him / English when my parents are around, my parents and the community speak to him in English, and Welsh will hopefully enter the mix once he starts school. So far, so good!
Heather, congratulations to you and your husband! Your lovely son no doubt has a very bright multilingual future ahead of him!
**My new book, "28 Bilingual English-Spanish Fairy Tales & Fables", is now available at booksellers worldwide!** Adam Beck is the author of the popular nonfiction books "Maximize Your Child's Bilingual Ability" and "I WANT TO BE BILINGUAL!" (illustrated by Pavel Goldaev) as well as the award-winning humorous novel "How I Lost My Ear" (illustrated by Simon Farrow).
Najwa: My eldest sings and verbalizes his figures/cars stories in an invented language that has English sounds and Italian accent. Is it his way to disconnect from his multilingual world?

Adam Beck: Najwa, it's hard to respond to your question without knowing the full details of the situation. I suggest starting a thread at a suitable board and offering as much information about these circumstances as you can.

Marisa: Merry Christmas to you, Adam, and to everyone! I also hope 2021 is better than this year we're about to end. It shouldn't be too difficult, right?
