Its been so long since I last wrote and heaps of things have been happening to the kids and to me too. But today, i particularly wanted to write about Eggy and her pink elephant which Uncle Sargeant from Laos got for her (Cookie got a yellow elephant). We were playing with the elephant in her cot with her throwing it out of the cot ever so often and me putting it back in there.. it's great fun for her!
A bit of some development speech (i now understand why mothers get so excited with their kids speaking.. from a only crying mass to a distinctly articulating mobile cave-kid.. its really like celebrating a crippled person walk again in a lesser degree). Anyway, Eggy can call me Mama or Mummy, point at Cookie, Kaka and Nimbus... but today, she pointed at the elephant and said "Mimi" and again "Mimi". I was wondering why.. cos i kept calling the elephant "Pinky".
It seems that Eggy is developing quicker in her speech than Cookie... She has also a repertoire of susu, tidur, butfly (butterfly), frawer (flower), frog (which she like to call mama as well) Aunt rene is really teaching her some nonsense..*grin* So far, no chinese words yet..
Also funnily, everytime we say "Papa", she would turn up her palm and shake it as tho to say that he is not around.. in many cases, he is not around. Marido is missing all the fun! Poor chap.
