Let's Play the Number Game (Numbers 1 to 10)

 Let's Play the Number Game
       Isabella Nalani just turned 21 months old and I am really happy that finally, we were able to take a video of her recognizing numbers 1 to 10.
     In this game, I used old cd's (which we are actually using as saucers) and then I wrote numbers on it and letters at the back of it. We have been playing this game for 5 months now. So I started making this numbered cd's when she was 16 months, but I was already teaching her since she was younger. It doesn't matter to me if she doesn't understand them. So it means, I was reading and teaching her since she was inside my tummy and until now, I am still teaching her and yes, I will never get tired being her teacher. (clap, clap)

Watch the video here. Please don't forget to like and share the video too. Subscribe my friends. :)

     When she was 8 months old, my friend, whom she called Tia Zonia, would count to her to her in spanish and english. She would use the lids of our used containers from our kitchen.

After that, I also decided to write numbers on it, and she has been playing with those lids since then.

     So my advice to new parents like me, is to never get tired of helping your kids learn. Read to them even if they don't understand, and count with them, even if they can't count. 
     It is all worth it!!! We are so happy even with simple things like, when she sees numbers on the floor, and she'll pick it up and give it to us. She would then tell us what number it is. She can only recognize numbers and letters everytime she sees them.
    And yes, letters and numbers is everywhere in the house, we have them in the kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, living room, name it, we got it.

Singing to your toddler

Have you ever tried singing with your toddler? Yes, I did and we had fun. In this video, I recorded the moment when I tried to sing her a song. She doesn't seem to like it but well, we had fun.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         
amazing grace

     There are so many worthwhile activities that we could do to enjoy the things that we do with our kids, it may not necessarily mean that you can do it perfectly, but it is always nice to involve them on the things that we like to do.
     I couldn't say that I have the nicest voice in the world, but I could say that I am one of those proud, and happy mothers around the world that tries to spend quality time with their kids.
     Here's our video and I hope you enjoy watching it, as much as she enjoys hurting me, uh oh I mean as much as she enjoys my singing voice lol.
(I was using my phone to record the video and I guess it wasn't that easy, video cam recorder is always much easier. :P)
