Poems!

Here is a short video of Aashini :) She can say the ABCs pretty well now, but if she gets hung-up on a letter she just says "X Y Z!!!" - it's funny :) She can also count to 20 in English and 15 in Hindi (but you'll only see her count to 2 in this video - haha!).... The main part of this video is Aashini doing 2 poems. They teach her how to do poems at school (they call them po-yums at school though - haha!) The first one is in English. It's called "Rolly Polly" (she only does one line of it and repeats it in funny ways). The Second one is in Hindi - it's about a Lion (which is why she's talking in a funny voice) :) haha! It makes me laugh! (oh, and ignore the runny nose in this video - she's battling a cold :))

Does she stop in the middle and say, "what's this", it sounded like it. She's so cute!

Sara Beth - yeah, she has a bit of an underbite, so she does the "F" so funny :)

Erin G - that song is her favorite! She calls it the Donkey Shrek song and she asks for it just about every day.

BEST VIDEO EVER! Oh those poems. How did you even know that's what was going on? I'm assuming you saw them all practicing their poems in class or they sent a note home or something? Otherwise you are just VERY intune with your daughter's speech. haha!

Emily - haha! Well, we had heard her saying lines from this poem quite a few times. I asked her to say the shar (sp?) poem and she just started doing it. We have a book of poems that they use at the school, so we were able to look it up and figure out exactly what she was saying ;)
