Adamic


As I was watching Faye sleep she seemed to be so peaceful and content.

Her hand was hovering near her mouth as if deciding whether or not it wanted to be sucked.

Her eyes were relaxed and her breathing was quiet and content.

Which was a stark contrast to just a few moments ago. She had been wide eyed and smiling. The occasional grunt and squeal were heard as she tried to communicate.

And then I wondered.

How do babies think? Some people think in pictures, some people think in words, and some people think in ideas. For babies who have yet to learn a language, how do they have thoughts? Or do they?

Are they programmed by need and instinct?

And how do they know if you are sitting down and they want you to be standing up. How do they know so much?

And then I think I may have figured it out. They are so recently come from Heaven, they must think the Adamic Language. Their grunts and squeals may really be Adamic, we just don't understand, so they are forced to learn our language.

Regardless of how they think, they sure learn the power of body language very quickly!

I have thought the exact same thing. Especially if you think about missionaries who learn foreign languages, they often get to the point where they start thinking in the other language.. so it shows it is influenced by what language you speak.. I am with you on the Adamic Language thing.

I always wonder what babies are thinking too, especially when people are hovering over them talking baby talk. :)

I often wonder what goes on behind those little eyes that gaze up at me.

Interesting thoughts, Amy.

Faye is starting to look more and more like a little girl, and not so much like a new baby! She's darling!

Love the picture of Faye! Such big beautiful eyes!
I once asked Pedro if he thought and dreamed in english or spanish. He looked at me like I was crazy and said he had no idea but whatever language it was he understood it. Weird! But I did find out that he thinks out loud in spanish and he talks in his sleep in spanish.

i'm always curious about what brennan is thinking about. we studied child dev from birth to adulthood in two divided classes over a year in college. it was sooooo interesting to see how the level of cognition changed with development. the thing i still wonder is how do "they" (the studiers) now that that is how the babies think and dev...
