Zara's first 3 syllable word
Zara spoke her first 3 syllable word 2 weekends ago when I was reading her bath time counting book to her which has a page filled with butterflies. She immitated when I said butterfly. Her version sounds something like "putter-pie". Now, she kept mumbling the word putter-pie, as though to practice her talking skill. She's picked up quite a few words the past 2 weeks, like : Kai Kai (go out) - tai tai Walk Walk - woh woh Park (Play ground)- Pak Bath - But Duck - Tuck Tuck Mr Blue (her softtoy) - Boo Car - Uhhhhh Uhhhh (with 1 arm raised and moving horizontally depicting a moving car) Aeroplan - Uhhhhh Uhhhh (same as car, but she'll be poining her finger upwards) Daddy - Pa Pa Zara - Sa-ah Apple - Ah-Per Full (饱饱) - Ba-Ba However, she's still not calling me mummy, mama or anything yet. And sometimes still confuse me with herself. When I asked, "where's Zara's nose?", she'll point to mine; but when it's "Where is che-che's (Samantha's) nose?", she'll point to Sam's. Maybe she thinks both of us are one entity, that's why when I'm around, she still clings to me like a koala.
