Named His Family

"Ana" This is how Joseph calls me every time.
One day I heard a little, cute and innocent voice call my name. "Ana..." Fidel called me! Children learn things very fast, especially at this early age.
When Fidel is with his daddy, Fidel likes to tease and keep calling my name, "Ana..., Ana..., Ana...."
OK... this is how he knows my name.

I teach him his daddy's name. He said "Yofes..." He still can not call his daddy's name clearly. Many times he forgets the name. Daddy's name quite hard to pronounce and remember.

Just one month before I deliver my second son, we finally decide his name. We told Fidel his brother name. I pointed my tummy and said, "弟弟的名字是(Brother's name is) Habel".

Surprisingly when I asked again what his brother's name, he can mention it clearly. At that moment he couldn't even mention his own name clearly yet.

After trained him few times about our name. Joseph had this conversation with him:
Joseph : "弟弟叫什么名(what is your brother's name)?"
Fidel : "Habel Lim"
Joseph : "你叫什么名(what is your name)?"
Fidel : "Fidel Lim"
Joseph : "妈妈呢(how about mother)?"
Fidel : "Ana..."
Joseph : "Daddy 叫什么名(what is daddy's name)?"
Fidel : "Papa Lim!"

Langsat and Jelly

I still remember Fidel's first word when he learned to communicate with us, which giggled us was "Up". He used the wrong word instead of "Down". I think he was about 20month-old that time.
Joseph and Fidel were playing together in the room. He wanted to ask his dad to come down from the bed. He pointed his finger and moved toward down and say, "Daddy up, daddy up".

Few months ago was Langsat/Duku (fruit) season. Joseph and Fidel like it so much. They ate together and Joseph always reminds him, "Be careful, got seed inside". After eat the flesh, he will spit the seed out.

Last Sunday at church, teacher gave him a small pack of jelly with nata de coco inside. First bite, he loves it. Then I helped press the whole jelly into his mouth. Soon he spit the whole jelly out.
I asked him, "Why?"
He frowned and said, "Got seed".
