Sprouting tiny chompers!

The day before yesterday was when I first noticed Nya’s bottom two front teeth cutting through her gums. So since she’s always been drooling tonnes of saliva since day one as an infant, she now drools even more……..
Thankfully she’s just as cheerful as ever and happy as a clam, none of that crankiness and irritability that accompanies the teething period. I’ll try to take a few pictures using my camera’s macro function later when the little tyke wakes up, hopefully it doesn’t come out as a blur.
Recently Nyx has started to help herself to her little sister’s pacifiers! Holey moley…… I reckon its due to her wanting to get more attention, cos she obviously knows she’s not supposed to do that. This week I’ve managed to teach her all the colours, counting up to 20 (she pronounces 15 as five-teen and 17 as sehburnteen), and the names of african animals. She’s also getting so good at babysitting Nya. Sometimes when Nya falls asleep next to her on the bed either during their daytime naps or at night, Nyx will put her index finger against her lips and tell Guojun and I “shhhh….. Meimei is sleeping….” The sentences she forms are much more complete and are getting longer, however she still has quite abit of work to do when it comes to pronouncing her R’s and L’s.
We usually give her “time-outs” or moments of “solitary confinement” in one of the bedrooms but that doesn’t work anymore cos she will just climb onto the bed or find something to step on and turn the lights. Then she’ll start finding toys to play with, books to flip through or just sing and talk to herself. So recently her daddy started to put her in the garage for “time-outs” when she starts behaving badly. Since last week whenever she gets angry with Guojun she would shout at him saying “do you want to go to the garage???!!!!!!” Pengz……..
