Changes

I suppose those who are by my side day in and day out do not notice it as much, but I am growing up. After returning to Bangkok, when Mommy showed me some of the pictures from our Singapore trip, she was thrilled that I recognized Uncle Kim Chuan and Grandma Gan. Of course I would (eyes rolling)... I hugged them every day for 2 weeks!
Anything I see that I like, I can now proclaim, "Nice... Pretty!" This past Saturday, we went to Uncle Chiet and Auntie Yuriko's for DIY-Sushi dinner. She gave me a hair clip, and Mommy was surprised that I did not yank it off my head immediately like I used to. Hey, I am a big girl now, and I do want to look PRETTY!
Yesterday evening, we had a quick ramen dinner at Hachiban. I was slurping my noodles expertly and making everyone laugh with my ramen twirling show. The penultimate serving Daddy fed me was a little too long, and I gagged after a monstrous effort to suck it down my throat. I managed to regurgitate that strand without throwing up the entire dinner (applause, please!). Later, when Daddy offered to feed me again, I gestured to him that I just choked and did not want anymore. Once again, praises and wonders from the adults... no brainer really, who actually enjoys gagging on noodles?!?

The noodle story cracked me up! My girls sure do love their noodles too! Great job gagging up just one! Sure wish my Gwenny would learn that trick!
