Backtrack 6: Hello, is it me you’re looking for?

(Delayed posting due to swine flu.)

Rosabelle’s always very interested in phones, handphones, and remote controls, getting all excited when she sees them, and at times throwing a hissing fit if we don’t let her grab them. That was when I decided to get her her own handphone from Fisher Price when we were shopping on 16 May.

She has not really gotten used to holding it up to her ear yet, but just munches on it. There were times when I would speak into her ‘phone’ and pass it to her ear, and she will chuckle happily, before grabbing it to give it a saliva OD, haha! Looks like she is also more interested in grabbing the logo on her Dad’s shorts instead of playing with her new toy….
This phone is supposed to teach her social skills, practice her motor skills (have to open and close it, and she can press the buttons for sounds/music), and recognize the alternating animals that appear on the phone screen. So excessive, huh…as Wayne said “RMB89! Add a bit more money and you can get a real handphone nowadays!” Haha, true, true…
