Bits & Pieces

I was changing her diaper. She suddenly blurted : "Fish Ball!". I was curious why she said that, I just guessed and said, "Zara thinks Zara's toes look like fish ball is it?". I pointed to her toes. Zara looked at me (as though I was stupid), then started pointing her finger at her mouth while saying, "Mum mum *point point* (Chinese: eat), Fish ball." (Tuyam said she does that very often, when she asked for something to eat, and Tuyam couldn't understand her, she'll point to her mouth and sign to us, like we're some bozos) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ . ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This morning, while at play, she shouted, "Mita Boo (Mr Blue), where are you? Want suck tum (thumb)!" (She has the habit of sucking her thumb while holding her soft toy Mr Blue) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ . ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ While pushing her in the stroller yesterday, Zara counted, "For, fai, sik, sehwen, egg" And repeated. Asked her to do from One, it will go something like "One, Egg, Ten." (She knows they are numbers but doesn't know the sequence). ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ . ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Zara's reciting the nursery rhyme Hey Diddle Diddle sounds like this: Diddle Diddle, Cat the fiddle, Cow oh the moon, spot, away spoon (Actual, Hey Diddle Diddle, The Cat and the fiddle, The Cow Jumped over the moon, The Dog laughed to see such sport, And the dish ran away with the spoon)

Twin said...

they are so cute when they learn how to talk. Btw, I notice all kids like fishballs. Denisha can eat like 20 and forgo her noodles. Gosh ... and she knows quality too. The ones that are not nice she will not eat. :Þ

Zara's Mama said...

egghead,
Title same only mah..

Helen,
De Zara Code.. cracked by Zara's mama. :P

May,
Most of the time, it's people who are closest to the child will know what she's saying. My maid and I can understand her since we are familiar with the way she pronunces a word. :)

Two Little Fellas,
Thank you.. and yes, when I read back some of the older entries on such a topic, it does bring back memory.

Blurblur,
Hee hee.. yeah.. and she make sure we know we're not as smart as her. :P

Huisia,
Haha.. no.. she wanted to hold Mr Blur and sucked her thumb at the same time.. it's her habit.

Twin,
Yeah yeah.. I heard at this age, their favourite food would most likely be fish balls! Wow.. Denisha IS sure a fish ball lover.

So lets get to the important issue. Did Zara get her fish balls?

Mama BoK said...

Zara is a really smart gal..! so happy for you ..!
My chloe still very slow in talking.. she knows what you are saying.. but refuses to repeat.... unless she wants to.

sesame said...

She knows how to count now? Very good! Her vocabulary is certainly increasing by the day!

Sue said...

Good thing that she likes to speak out her thoughts, like looking for Mr Blue :)
