Saying "xie xie" (Thank You)

We have been trying to teach Jocelyn how to say thank you and she has been catching on pretty quickly. Today when I was driving home from church, Jocelyn dropped her sippy cup and she asked me to get it for her. When I handed it back to her she said on her own in the sweetest voice "xie xie." It was so cute. Then tonight Jocelyn made Jacob and I both laugh when she was taking a bath:

Jacob: "Jocelyn yao bu yao qu ma ma?" ("do you want to go to mommy?" I usually catch her and dry her off after her bath)
Jocelyn: "no... no..." (while shaking her head)
Jacob: "hao, rang Jocelyn wan yi xia" ("Okay, let Jocelyn play a little bit longer")
Jocelyn: "xie xie" ("thank you")

Jocelyn just amazes us and we feel like she is growing up so fast. This is one of the reasons why I want to start blogging. So I can write things down, and hopefully be better at this than keeping a journal. Anyway, Jocelyn makes me smile everyday and she makes it so worth being a mommy! I love my little family.

I can't believe you're six months pregnant already! Time's flown for me... probably not for you, though!
