Gor Gor has been picking up new words so rapidly that I can’t jot down all his new words. He is so excited when he picks up new things and that we understand what he is saying. Here are some of his new words that Mummy can remember in addition to what was written in the previous post.
18) Pao pao (When he wants us to carry him)
19) One more …
He likes to put his fingers in his mouth and his hands will be wet. He will say wet wet and wants us to wipe his hands. He will say “wipe” in Mandarin.
Gor Gor knows how to say the word bee because poor Gor Gor, he stepped on a bee and was bitten by it.
26) Uh oh …
36) Milk but he still prefers to refer it as Nei Nei
49) Put back
56) A, B, C, D, E … (Mum taught until this part)
and so on …
Horray!! He has reached more than a 100 words including the words in this post and earlier post Mummy felt that this is one of her greatest achievement. It is sure not easy but as a mother, I feel that I have the responsibility to teach him well.
I taught him how to recognise the different colours and as he is so passionate about cars, he is able to point out which car is red, blue, white, black, yellow and so on …
When we are at the traffic light, he knows red light means stop and green light means go. He is really cute when red light, he will say stop and green light, he will say go go go …
Toddlers pick up things very fast, he saw me used the DVD player and wanted to play the DVD so each time when we play his DVDs, I will let him do it. Geeze … as a result, he wants to do it every time I am at home, it can be many times a day. He doesn’t allow us to watch our own programmes as he wanted us to watch his.
Oh he loves songs and dance. His favourite songs are twinkle twinkle little stars, old macdonald and so on. He is able to fill in the blanks for his favourite songs. We will sing bits and pieces and he will fill the words in.
He likes to imitate us so much now. When I was having chicken rice for lunch, he wanted to eat and I was so surprised that he started to scoop up the rice with the spoon and eat. Before that, he has never eaten chicken rice. As usual, Puffy, our dog was jumping up and down wanting to eat our food. Suddenly he said out the words “go away” to Puffy. I was so surprised. I didn’t know he knows how to say these two words. He must have picked up from us when we asked Puffy to go away when he was always jumping up and down at the table.
