when i grow up, i want to be a... (at 18 months)

the one and a half year old alex weighs about the same and is maybe taller by a centimeter. amazing how time flies by. in a blink of an eye she could be anyone she dreams of becoming to be...

she carries around her "emyo" (elmo) doctor's kit. checks heartbeat of her bears with the "cookie montu" (cookie monster)r stethoscope. says "aaah!" with the bert thermometer and "burd" (big bird) otoscope. wears ernie blood pressure gauge.

marches to "left! left! left! right! left!"

walks on tiptoes and dances around in circles

pretends to cry a lot :))

...ball player
likes to play with "boi" (ball).

alex (singing): meow, meow, meow, meow, meow, meow, meow! (to the tune of "tinkle, tinkle likel kay", a.k.a "twinkle, twinkle little star")

alex likes singing and listening to music. used to really laugh at the screaming part of "doo bidoo" in the the "kami nApo muna album". the one that comes after "eto na, eto na, eto na..." now, she says "bi doo wah" and points to the pc when she wants me to play the songs and sings along.

...music playing in the background...

mahal kita, mahal kita.
hindi 'to bola
sumagot ka naman
wag lang...

alex (singing): owan... (ewan)

...music playing in the background...

doo bidoo bidoo
bidoo bidoo
doo bidoo bidoo
bidoo bidoo
alex (singing): bidoowah!

alex speaks four languages: english, slovak, filipino and spanish. mommy and daddy speak to her mostly in english while "baka" (babka) speaks to her in slovak. picks up some filipino words from me. and, to our surprise, she sometimes counts in spanish, or says "abre! open doy!" (open door)
