2.5 Years Old Video (thumbnail)Two and a half years ago, just after the 2009 vernal equinox, my daughter, Nora, was born. It was quite exciting. She’s come quite a ways since then. Just last week, I heard her mother ask her how old she was in Spanish, and Nora responded “dos años y medio”. So immediately I set upon teaching her to say “two and a half” in English. It wasn’t easy, as she simply refused to even attempt the phrase for several days. But eventually I prevailed, just in time for her half-birthday. Marga had to work today (Nora also learned to say, “Today is Saturday!” today), so we didn’t have our traditional birthday hamburger feast.

She only knows her birthdate in Spanish. There are subtitles in Spanglish, English, and Spanish.

  • Wow she is so cute! I just found your blog and look forward to reading. I just married a Spaniard and suppose that one day I might also be raising some bilingual babies. A ver…!

  • I love how kids answer questions sometimes, like, “Duh, Dad. Two and a half!” 

    • I get a lot of that. It’s somewhat understandable on the fifty-first time that I ask her the question, but sometimes I ask her obvious questions just to see if she’s comprehending a situation, and she says, “Ugh! Mommy just went upstairs and she’ll be down in a second!” (or whatever has just happened…).
