First Hebrew Word

Several nights ago as we were lighting the candles for Hanukkah, we sang the blessings and our daughter clearly said, "Baruch (Blessed)".

On the 7th night of Hanukkah she sang all the blessings with us. True, she doesn't yet know the words, but she hung on to the tune with all her might.

Tonight is the last night of Hanukkah. Wonder if she will tell the story of the Maccabees? She is quite like them - small but mighty, and tenacious. Don't know if they were as cute, though.
