What does a sheep say?

Did my first video Skype call last night since moving to Israel.  Talked to my brother, sister-in-law, and 1-year-old niece Alexa.  Alexa was eating her dinner at the time (broccoli and chicken).  My brother set his laptop right in front of her tray table, so we could see each other.  She was thoroughly confused by this.  (She is only one, after all).  I imagine she was like, “Why is this TV saying my name?  It seems like it’s talking to me, but how can that be?  Can I interact with this thing?  Mom and Dad are here, so it must be safe.  Mmmm, broccoli.”

She has just learned how to answer when you ask her, “What does a sheep say?” “What does a cow say?” and “What does a horse say?”  I ACTUALLY GOT TO ASK HER THESE QUESTIONS FROM 8,000 MILES AWAY AND HAVE HER ANSWER ME DIRECTLY (through the Skype video call) !!!   O-M-G, it was aWeSoMe !!!  Here is a screen shot from the call.
