A spokesman for Rep. Gabrielle Giffords says the congresswoman is speaking "more and more," the first confirmation that she is able to talk a month after being shot in the forehead.

Giffords spokesman C.J. Karamargin says Giffords spoke for the first time within the past few days.

He does not know what her very first words were, but says at breakfast one morning she asked for toast.

He says "she's working very hard and it's paying off" and that everyone at the office is elated.

He says they always knew Giffords was a fighter and that "she's not going to let this thing win."

Six people were killed in the attack outside a supermarket where Giffords was holding a political event. Thirteen were injured.
