Ni Hao Kai-Lan & Uncle Andy Bike

Grandma Barb sent Timmy some birthday presents including a few Ni Hao Kai-Lan videos. Kai-Lan is a cartoon on Nickelodeon similar to Dora the Explorer how she teaches Spanish words, but Kai-Lan teaches Mandarin. One episode (that Timmy l-o-v-e-s), is Kai-Lan Goes To China. Apparently she lives in California normally. Timmy keeps talking about the airplane that Kai-Lan flies in to get to China and Kai-Lan's grandpa, Yeh-yeh. He even imitates the baby panda that is afraid of a boat. He walks around whining and saying, "Baby." I ask him if the baby is afraid and he stops whining and says, "Yeah." He plays peek-a-boo with the panda on the TV as well. Hilarious.

We've been trying to teach Timmy to say his name when asked. The other morning I asked him what his name was, and his response was, "Andy." I said, "Your name is Andy?" He said, "Yeah, Andy Bike." Last night when we were praying with Timmy and thanking God for grandmas and grandpas and aunts and uncles. When we said each family member's name, Timmy would repeat it. When we got to Uncle Andy, he said, "Andy Bike." So I guess that's your new name Andy Bike.
