Re: bi lingual babies?

we have some friends/neighbors who're doing english & spanish. from what i've observed, mom (who's the native spanish speaker) speaks almost exclusively spanish to the kids, but not 100% of the time. they have two older girls (10 & 7) and a 1 yo. dad does mostly english with a smattering of spanish. the older kids seem to understand spanish, but i don't really hear them actively conversing with their mother in spanish. the little boy isn't talking yet.

about the only other thing i've read about raising kids bilingually is that sometimes young children who grow up with two languages will talk a little later than those raised in a monolingual house.
