Liam Says Part II

Barely 2 years old and Liam’s vocabulary is expanding profoundly. Comparing it to my old list, there are lots of improved and new words. The mommy can’t catch up jotting down.  I need to post this down na before I forget his ever changing dictionary.  Yes, it changes.. kasi his speech is improving.  He learned how to say multi syllable words already.

Our new bed time routine now includes telling our daily stories, like what we did for the day.  His story always includes his morning routine with his dad, where they ride the jeep and go to IT Park to buy bread and pudding then they watch and feed the fishes.

Whew! Ang dami and ang hirap mag spell ng pronunciations nya.. Makes me wonder how I will spell his words out later on when I teach him to speak Chinese na.. hahaha.. Oh well.. I think I missed out a lot of words, I should update every time may maalala ako. 🙂

 

P.S. On second thought, I will just post a part III. 🙂
