Hope I did not leave anything out. Most things stated out are English because little man is very strong in his understanding of Chinese, mainly because we speak to him in the language. Ironically, we teach him to say more English words than Chinese, hence the weird combination of strong English spoken vocabulary but weak understanding for English instructions, and strong understanding for Chinese instructions, but weak Chinese spoken vocabulary. I am still thinking how to rectify this. Any suggestions?
