Ted is really starting to talk and it amazes us how much he is learning. We have to be really careful about what we say around him now. Even his teachers are surprised by how much he understands and they tell us that sometimes they switch to speaking in Cantonese so that he doesn’t pick up what they are discussing.
Just yesterday in the car…
Me: *singing the chorus of a song* Chan Mali Chan Hoi Hoi, Chan Mali Chan..
Ted: Mama, can you start from the beginning?
We were surprised he knew the word “beginning”.
Last week at home…
Me: Ted, what are you doing?
Ted: I am biting the pillow. Then I will confiscate it.
I confiscate all the things that he puts into his mouth that he’s not supposed to.
And not too long ago…
Me: Ted, can you sit on this giraffe? *point to lego giraffe I just built*
Ted: No, I’m too young. I’m 2 years old.
The vocabulary and logic of a 2 year old!
