Amazing Annya

Posted by Xun  | 

When Emma was two, she delighted and amazed us with her abibility of reciting a good number of Chinese ancient poems (we have videos for proof). She has always always been a non-stop singer and giggler. She sang and sang, on and on; she giggled and giggled, for no obvious reasons ... Her teacher told us that she had never met any happier student ...

Now Annya!!!

Annya is amazing. Currently she is everything about Alphabet. She loves watching the slew of ABC songs on YouTube, singing in differnt voices, acted out in different ways. She sings along; she reads every ABC book, the I-spy ABCs, the plain ABCs ... she plays wiht magnets Alphabets, over and over ... so not suprisingly and yet no less amazingly, she recognizes almost all of the alphabets: A, B, C ...

Annya can count too. If not in a real sense of counting. However if we say 1, 2, she picks up quick, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 ... in English and Chinese. This is a big progress over the 2 year old Emma, she was always confused about how comes after 2 or 3. Emma still complains she does not have enough fingers to do her math.

Annya and Emma are a pair. They sing and sing, the Mouse love song, they sing blissfully: "I love you, I miss you, like that a mouse loves rice ... no matter how hard it is, I will always be with you."

They love beautiful dresses, then they spin and say: Look at me, look at me.

Annya is so much bolder. She loves swing, she says: higher, higher. She says: can we go slide today? T

Love them.

The month has been a big whirl of events. I could not even remember to take some pictures.
