For two weeks now all I've seen of Ruth is flat affect. At first her cries were like a water faucet- on about as fast as off. But mostly she has no response. Yesterday the girls brought a plastic container with different shaped blocks. We bombarded "the babies" with speech. Then we decided to see what would happen if we placed the toys in the center of their little circle and say nothing. Suddenly Ruth made a sound, then more and more-- no distinguishable words, but clear intent! We quickly discovered that Ruth is possessive. She wants the toys -- all of them. It was an amazing thing to watch.  Then, Ruth stood up and took a few steps independently! Oh My, the secrets these children hold!
