Updates on Victoria Lily Joy van den Broek, born 120705.

Friday, February 22, 2008


Our little morning sessions are not as fun-filled as they were. I'm not sure whether Victoria is bored or just can't do what I'm asking her. This morning all we did was run through the sound cards and then count bears of various colours into different sized pieces of a fererro rocher plastic mold!
I was heartened to hear that when David put her in bed last night (I was shopping again..), he observed her 'singing along' to the CD. She seems to be quite familiar with this particular one which has 'we're all going to the zoo tomorrow' on it. she makes a noise a bit like zoo (more like jjjooo) and makes the noises (and signs) for the various animals anticipating them and making the sign before they are mentioned. I still insist on some high-brow stuff like Beethoven, Dvorak and Haydn whenever I can - but she can't be expected to sing along to them...
The potty training is at last looking promising - nothing unwanted on the carpet for a while.
Victoria is developing a relationship with Lucy who was in charge of feeding her at dinner time. Lucy thinks it is cute how Victoria hands her hands out to the side of her, palms uppermost, and says 'no no' (an adaptation of 'don't know') when baffled about life.
