something that will keep her occupied for longish periods of time (my
sister gives birth in March, possibly right around my niece's birthday).
what's something I could give her that would encourage talking? She has
crazy-good speech comprehension skills, but she hasn't really started
talking b/c she doesn't need to. Her parents totally spoil her, she
communicates a la pointing-and-grunting, and they figure it's ok because
they know what she means. She has, like, 5 words, and half of those are
shorthand (nana for milk, and such).
