小老大自从爱上chapter books以后我就没什么好日子过了。借书买书的速度完全跟不上她小人家看书的速度。上个月刚买了20本的 Junie B. Junes, 两个星期的时间全看完。780页的书,一天最多看到两本。上星期去library借来的书,两天看完了。臭小人闲的惹得小老二哇哇叫。希望ebay sellers寄书寄得快点吧。救命的心声!

Three ears

Kathy likes counting stuffs. She surprises the families by counting all the way to ten sometimes. However, please, do not take her to compare with real genius. Let me tell you why.

Tonight, somehow this little person enjoyed so much on counting others’ ears, and of course, her own’s. It was the time when I took my vitamin tablets from the jar, the little person pulled my left ear and started counting, ONE. Then turned my hand, found another ear and counted, TWO.

Hmm, how nice, Mommy has TWO ears. And let me say how many I have. Little person touched her left ear, ONE, then right ear, TWO, and then left ear again, THREE!

Grabbed Daddy head, started with left ear and then right, ONE, TWO. Sarah’s was the third to count, also, ONE, TWO.

That little person got excited, “Mommy TWO, Daddy TWO, 姐姐TWO, Kathy THREEE!!!!”

Questioning Always

Can not remember when things started to become different to us, things like automatically answering the questions “what’s that” popped out from the tiny little mouth, things like automatically saying “ok ok sure sure” when the little person tells us to “stop it”.

Regardless when and how, my tiny little person is growing into a big girl. Surprised to find out the little person can sing more than 20 songs though not word by word, likes to draw curly lines, enjoys telling stories to herself while playing with the toy, and remembers all her favorite characters from Arthur’s series and Disney princess stories.

On top of all above, I have to give credit to this little person for her good table manner, politeness and sweetness. If life can go on without the little one acting like the worst devil sometimes, I’d say that the world is the most beautiful place with Kathreen.
