Oh say can you say?



New pictures (play dough magic, making soup, changing baby's diaper)


What a winter it's been! After never ending open houses, we finally found our new home. Sammy came to the inspection and gave us her seal of approval by taking a nice long nap in the new house. More about the house later. What I really wanted to write about is that our kiddo is talking. She's been saying so many new words that I want to capture them all before I forget what they were. Some of them require a translation from Samanthese to English.

  • "Biyaba, biyaba, biya-biyaba" -- Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way
  • "Wizi" -- Kiwi

  • Cheese
  • Pasta
  • Eyes, Ears, Nose, Mouth, Teeth
  • Shoes, Hat
  • Tree
  • Snow (pronounced as "no")
  • Water

Russian words:


  • "Dulya" -- Dedulya (Grandpa), also used to refer to Grandma
  • "Baba" -- Babushka (Grandma)

  • Oblako -- Cloud

We've been playing with play dough and painting a lot too.
