Bilingual?

So last night I thought I would film Summer and Camryn sitting on Summer's bed, reading a book.


Chinese? Really? After the video cut off, she proceeded to repeat the Chinese a few more times. Only thing I can figure is she picked it up from Kai-Lan. She loves that show.

Yesterday I was trying to help Camryn learn to count. I've heard her count a bit with Summer and repeat numbers and even fill in a number if you pause when you count. Here was our conversation:

Me: Camryn, let's count to 10! 1...

Camryn: Uno!

Me: That's Spanish. Let's count in English. 1...

Camryn: No. Uno... Dos...

Me: 1. 2. 3...

Camryn: No! Like Dora!

Me: Ok. Uno...

Camryn: Dos. Tres. Cuatro. Cinco. Seis. Siete. Ocho. Nueve. Diez!

I don't know if this is a good thing, or if it means they watch too much Dora and Kai-Lan!

As I'm typing this we are watching Dora.

That is so cute and funny that they want to count in different languages. It just goes to show you that just because its a cartoon doesn't mean it doesn't teach them something!

I think it's a good thing! LOL Mine watches Dora sometimes, but can't count in Spanish. They're super cute! I've been wanting to tape Keely reading to Brynleigh, but I can't do it myself since Bryn can't sit up yet by herself. Maybe since B is home, I can get him to tape it for me. :)

hahaha they get cuter and cuter!

Bridgett said...

LMAO!

Is it terrible I hate Kai Lan? I hate the way it sounds like she's calling her grandfather yea-yea. LOL

Drives me bonkers.

And hey! I think it's great they're counting in Spanish. I always planned on teaching my kids to become bilingual...but then Parker didn't talk at all. So my plans became seriously disrupted. :(

XOXO

They are too cute!!!
I can't believe how big Summer is sometimes, I remember when all we saw of her was the ultrasound pic. She's really bright Steph!

They pick up other languages so easily at this age. It's really amazing.

...and so cute to see Summer read to her little sister :)

(((we searched for websites that had sound clips in other languages, that's where we got Eli learning French and have started a little German))
