Every day when I get home from school I say, "Hello Kitty Dress please Mama!", "Bow shoes please", "Hello Kitty socks please".
And everywhere I go I must have one of my three favorite soft cloth dollies with me.
This is me with my favorite Teddy Newf
Books are another of my favorite things. I like to drag mine all out and have them surrounding me for easy access. As always I have my Hello Kitty dress on and one of my favorite dollies by my side. This particular dolly was the exact one my Daddy gave me when I first met him and Mommy in China. Thanks Papa for picking out this great dolly.
Speaking of China, I am a big fan of the Nickelodeon show "Ni Hao KaiLan!" I now use two Mandarin phrases on a regular basis: Ni Hao (hello) and Xie Xie (thank you).
One of my favorite episodes is when KaiLan and her friends go on an airplane to China. I have lots of pictures of myself when I was a baby in China and I've decided I'm ready to go back for a visit. Mama says she will take me when I get older, and since I am a little older everyday I make sure to mention at least 10 times a day so she doesn't forget... "Mama, I want to go China. Mama and Natalie fly on airplane in the sky, ok?"
[Note From Mama: She calls China "Natalie's China" and says "No you China, Daddy/Mommy; Natalie's China!" I want to take her on a heritage trip in about 10 years.]
