RaeAnne is starting to parrot what we are saying, sometimes not 100% accurate but enough for us to guess what's she saying. She said 'remon' when I said lemon and she said 'Milk' with an US accent, (influenced by Filamie?) today too, LOL. I let her try some Koko crunch with fresh magnolia milk.
She likes us to sing to her too. So besides being car deejay, she'll dedicate songs and we have to sing for her usually around bedtime when we are trying to coax her to sleep. If she says 'ang ang ang' or 'mon', I have to sing the doraemon song. Nowadays, I'll sing and let her complete the last word. Eg. Ang ang ang, totemo daisuki dorae.... and she'll finish with 'Mon'.
She likes the "Pat a cake" song too cos there is an illustration of baby in the lyrics "put it in the oven for Baby and Me" in her the picture nursery rhyme book which we bought from a TMC push cart. Turns out to be a good buy cos they illustrate each nursery rhyme with many pictures instead of just 1 main picture for each nursery rhyme. Only problem is sometimes she wants to run back to the living room to get the book after saying baby, baby. She also likes the incy winsy spider song, she'll put her forefingers together to 'symbolize' the spider climbing up the spout. We put our thumb and little finger together to show the spider climbing but she can't quite get that yet. Haha.
Oh and she knows how to count but only 1 and 2. For one, she'll write 'yi' as taught by MIL. The other day, when we received the Parklon Pooh Multipurpose mat which we bought to put beside her little bed (delivery was sent to ILs place). MIL said she wanted to drag the big bumper mat out and said '2' and gestured with her fingers 2. hehe. :)
Strangely, she has been fake crying when I leave her at playgroup these few mornings. She has stopped doing that for some time. :P
Belina, my feb08 mummy friend recommended 2 books "Big sister" and the Usbourne Phonic series (with a hidden yellow ducky on each page), her daughter loves it. Will try and order from book depository soon. :)
