The Linguistic Genius of Babies

Yes, I believe my newborn is more genius than I.

I speak English. My wife speaks Mandarin Chinese, Japanese, and English. We talk to our daughter in all of these languages.

Lilyann, our 5 month old, talks a lot. But, not in a language we can fully understand. Hopefully when she is older she will translate her fourth language to us. And, then we can say: if only we understood.
