15 January 2016: My little chatterbox.
It was one night when I taught her how to say I love you to her Dad when she was playing lego with her father.
: Naomi, say: 'I love you, Papa'.
: How are you?
: No. I.. love.. you..
: How are you.
: Say I...
: ..... #whiteflag
2. Hello and bye
Because I know she can say Hello and Bye already.
: Naomi, say: 'Hello!'.
: Hello. Not bye.
I was telling her that the red thing covering her lego racer's head is called helmet.
: Naomi, say 'Helmet'.
: Hel - met...
While I was about to drive her to the school this morning, she saw the CNY decorations hanging on the car porch's ceiling that my husband put on yesterday.
: Ooh.. Mami.. !
: No.. Not corn. Pine-apple.
: Pain-apul.. Hehe.
: Pine.. Apple.
Her Dad taught her how to play and say Rock-Paper-Scissors in Mandarin few weeks ago. One night before she slept, she recited this to us.
: Papa.. papa...
: Shi tou jian dao bu! (read: rock, scissors, paper)
: Ba bei bi ba bu！！
: 乱乱讲话。。 再来! (read: talk nonsense. say it again)
Ever since she watched Pink Fong's Baby Shark song and memorized the lyrics, she has been singing the song non-stop and refers all the big fish like sharks, whales, dolphins as Shak Tu Tu.
: Mami, mami! Shak tu tu... Shak tu tu!
Baby Shark song goes something like this: "Baby Shark tu tu tu tu tu, baby shark tu tu tu tu tu.." and then eventually the catchy lyric repeats until Grandma Shark.
Naomi is free from her pacifier but still looks for her napkin(s) at home to comfort her, especially when she just had tantrums or is about to sleep. Her teacher has started to make her stop of using napkin in the school and daycare and she can do that just fine during day time there.. However, at home and when we are in the car or out and about, she still carries her napkin everywhere.
: Mami, mei bu.. mei bu.. chou-chou (read: smelly).
: Niao-bu (read: napkin).
: Mei-bu.. Mmmm.. *sniff*
: Chou-chou. Give it to me. Mami wash.
: No. I don't want.
Ahh.. How I had waited this moment for so long. To hear her say something meaningful and long enough in our language. Haha. #latetalker #thingsmykidsays
