Identification

We ask her the names of things. I’m Mama, TCB is Papa, Angus is "doge", Crax is "Mau!" She knows her nose, eyes, ears, brains, head, knee, elbow, cheeks, chin, mouth, teeth, neck, toes, knee, sternum. And cheetah, zebra, elephant, giraffe (‘raff), dingo, tazmanian devil, bear, snake, lion. What does she call herself? I can ask her where Lena or baby is, and she points to herself. If I point to her and ask if that’s Lena, she says, "no! Anna."
