K is the first letter of the alphabet mat Sophie learned to recognize as "K" for Kong Kong. Eventually she got to "P" for Papa, "M" for Mama, "Z" for Zoe, etc.
Words she can say now:
1. Papa (first word!)
2. Kong Kong (though she pronounces it more like Geng Geng)
3. Tita (Filipino for Aunty - my maid)
4. Mama (I think she means me but G insists it means his mum! Damn.. I am the last person to be acknowledged by my own daughter lor.)
5. Nen Nen (Argh.. she calls my breasts but not me!)
6. Popo (only once or twice)
7. Meimei (only once!!)
8. Uh (I think its her approximation for UP = upstairs, the room where G and I sleep. She has a recent fascination with climbing stairs and will always point up and shout "Uh" at the same time to indicate she wants to go up)
So, LO for FIL's birthday was inspired by the K is for Kong Kong.. May I say I didn't knoe what else to title?? I am not really close to my FIL and do not talk to him a lot. And this had to be a simple quick LO squeezed out in between attending to either screamer jiejie or yeller meimei = no time to think!
