Baby update!

She is somewhat larger than a baby now, but anyway ..

Recently we have been rewarding Gisele with chocolate whenever she uses the toilet. She has now taken to negotiating the number of chocolate pieces she will receive, sometimes even before entering the toilet.

What was happening for a while was that she would say "2 chocolate!" and hold up 2 fingers. If I agreed to that, she would try "3 chocolate!" and see how far she could get. When mummy heard, she would always say "1 chocolate" to get the negotiations down. Gisele figured this out, and now she will sign the number of chocolate pieces instead of saying them out loud. If mummy can't hear, then mummy can't be involved in the negotiations.

Her speech is getting very clear as well. I can usually understand her over the phone, when I cannot see any context. She is also getting quite good at reading. Train station names that she passes every day are no problem, and she recognizes them out of context as well. "Stop" and "Slow" are also favorites that she can recognize in any context. According to my mum she also said "Quay", but mispronounced it as "kway", apparently reading the word herself. I haven't seen any other examples of this though. But I would expect her to begin soon, as she is learning about the letters that start each word, and knows how to spell some short words.

Pics our taken with our new Canon Digital EOS 450D. It takes much nicer pictures than our compact coolpix camera we have been using in the past.
