We went and bought a bike for Gio from an expat who was leaving the country.
The nanny changed Gio into his sleeping clothes and took him to sleep.
Afte a while, Gio started really crying. I wondered if the nanny had done something to him.
He went on for a while, so I went into their room and found him standing on his bed and crying. Maybe he was kneeling.
I consoled him and told him to sleep.
He settled down. I stayed a few minutes and left. No more crying.
Gio likes numbers written for him and things drawn for him.
Some of the art done for Gio now that he likes numbers and shapes:
Celebrating Mama’s birthday. (There were more guests than shown in the picture).
Gio’s pronunciation of numbers has changed:
‘Tor’ has become ‘four.’
‘Tat’ has become ‘five.’
‘Nenen’ has become ‘seven’ (or something close(r)).
Gio knows colours: Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, pink
The boy is bilingual.
Nanny: Usiweke hiyo kwa mdomo. Ni chafu.
(Don’t put that in yopur mouth. It’s dirty)
