Although we understand that the time frame for referral is rapidly increasing (to our dismay), we...okay I keep adding to Chynna's doll collection.
I ran across this adorable doll (Baby Ling by Language Littles) that speaks both Mandarin and English. She says the following phrases in both languages:
- how are you?
- what is your name?
- My name is Ling.
- Can we be friends?
- I like to run.
- Play games
- Let's count to ten (and then actually does so)
- Good bye
- I love you
Ling's "voice" is actually a Chinese native speaking young girl, how cool is that?
She is totally amazing, and we can't wait for Chynna to be able to hear her and play with her.
Then we (okay already it was me again) found Dora World Adventure which speaks six different languages (absolutely amazing).
I have been practicing pushing the baby stroller with both Ling and Dora riding along, and haven't had too many accidents with it (guess I will get better with time).
Freckles however, knows when "mommy" is coming, and quickly moves out of my way (I wonder if that will be the case when Chynna is "riding along", can't wait to find out, only time will tell).
Now if that turtle carrying our Chynna referral will just speed up a little. Ray tells me he keeps asking the turtles he comes across if they have any information, but he hasn't had any luck in getting any hints from any of the turtles he has "rescued". We will keep you all posted as more information becomes available.
