something, anything

alex spelling her name: "a-l-e-y-o-p-x... alex!"

alex immitating tigger (t-i-double g-errrrr!!!): "t-i-ge-ga-double g eouw!" (growling)

alex doing verbs: "sit downing" or "this one sit downs"

alex singing fly to your heart:
fly to who you ay (fly to who you are)
flymb upon yoy side (climb upon your star)
you felif if you fly your wings (you believe you'll find your wings)
flaa-aah-aah-aaay to yoy haym (fly to your heart)


alex had name's day (alexandra) last january 2. we just had a simple celebration at home, with a homemade cheesecake of course. yum-yum-yummy! she really loves to blow candles. i guess all kids do. :)


alex started potty training during the holidays. she still wears pull-ups up to now. from time to time she askes to go to potty, but most of the time we have to make her. although sometimes she asks to go to potty every 10 minutes so she can get a gummy bear or lately a jelly bean (her favorite rewards).


the mini kitchen is one of alex's favorite toys nowadays. by mere coincidence, a friend gave her apron and pot holders. she also loves to play with her building blocks, some puzzles, stuff toys and books.

two and a half year old vocabulary

i just can't say it enough... children are really amazing creatures of GOD. at two and a half years, alex still continues to amaze me. right after karol was born, alex started asking THE question -- the never ending "why?"

it happened one time when i was changing karol's diaper. she usually gets the new diaper. that time, i forgot to wait for her and took one myself....

mommy: alex please put back the diaper.
alex: but, why mommy? why?

her language skills are really overwhelming (i know, i've said it a million times). like a sponge, alex absorbs everything she sees and hears. now she speaks and understands slovak much more than before. she also has learned to apply some rules of grammar on her own. see examples below: :D

irregular verb:
do's (as in "parents do, and santa do's.")
do'd (as in "what did you do'd?")

bookses, jellybeanses
jablkos (jablko, slovak for apple)

it's realy cool when she makes these grammar mistakes. because that's when we learn that she's learning :)
