Her favourite word: mama, mama mamaAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!! (Yes in that exact manner). She first uttered 'mama' at 10 month old.
Her favourite things are 'ba ba' which can mean 'balloon, ball and birds' all starting with 'B'!
Her other favourite thing is 'ka ka' for shoe.
She loves shoes and would insist i try on shoes for her when we're out shopping at the shoes department :I.
She also says 'na na!' for 'No, no'
She says 'ge ge' (or something like that) for 'kor kor' (big brother)
She understands two-step instructions like 'pick it up and put it back' or 'put it back and close the (drawer, door)'. I am loving this because i get to engage her help at times!
She points to things that attracts her; she can point to her body parts & fruits etc when asked.
She understands when i say 'Mama is going to the toilet', she would drop all that she's doing and start walking & pointing at the bathroom where i'd do my business.
She knows to head toward our reading corner when i say 'read book time!'
Or when i say 'let's go', she would wave and start to head toward the door or to me.
Recently, she seems to tell me after doing her 'big business'. She would look at me and say 'baba' while pulling her diaper.
Awwww, my baby is growing up too fast!
I am also a tad dissapointed that she isn't showing signs of reading (yes, i can see all you people rolling your eyeballs, here let me help pick them up for you).
But that's because i realised sonshine recognised a list of words at 14 month old. I know, i know, each child is different. I do realised that i have unconsciously put on sonshine's cognitive learning curve on her. Here, i have to remind myself that it would be a different route with her. I have had it too easy with sonshine since he absorbs information very fast & effortlessly.
So my journey with babydoll might be alittle different, ok maybe even difficult. :I
But then again, to be fair to her, i haven't put on the same diligence on teaching & reading with her as i had with the boy. This i blame sonshine's school! I am spending my time ferrying him up & down; it really breaks any momentum.
Anyway, time to buck up mama! :)
