A year ago, I couldn’t imagine what Tomoe’s sense of humour would be like. Now I know. She loves playing around and joking.
One of her favourite things to do is make faces. If I copy her, she laughs. She also laughs a lot if I pretend I’m eating her feet. But on the other hand, she pretends to drink from a cup, feed me imaginary food, and she’ll play peekaboo with a blanket on her head. She’s a copycat, too. She jumped the same way I did tonight, and she also bent her waist the way I did.
She’s also been getting very moody. When she wants something, she demands it. If she doesn’t get it, she gets angry. She’s very impatient, especially with food. Even though she may be sitting and I’ve got food in her spoon, she’ll cry until it’s finally in her mouth.
She’s talking more now. However, it’s mostly “hello,” “douzo,” and “choudai.” She understands things very well, too. She understands stand up, sit down, come here, where’s your bellybutton, and more.
When she’s going out, she runs to the door and waits patiently for us to put her shoes on. When she’s going to the nursery, she’s very impatient, though. She always holds her arms out for me to pick her up and get her out to the car. She even eagerly holds her arms out for the driver of the car. She’s really enjoying the nursery these days.
Recently, she’s figured out how to put shapes in holes. She gets excited and waves her arms when she succeeds. It’s quite funny watching her do that. And of course, she’s still obsessed with using a phone. She’ll use anything as a phone, though. But she particularly loves using her mom’s iPod Touch. She knows how to turn it on, unlock it, scroll through the apps, and start up her favourite games. She’s knows where the start button is for each game, too. I’m very impressed with her ability to use an iPod so well.
And now, some pictures.
