Raees Hearts Elmo

Sometimes when I greet Raees as he wakes up in the morning, the first thing he would say is, "Elmooo." I would say to myself, "This cannot be. Got to correct this."

Me: No, this is mommy. Say mom...my?
Raees: Ma...mo
Me: Mom..my?
Raees: El...mo

Thanks to Mer, Raees is now hooked on that cute little red monster. Although that wasn't the intention at first. He initially wanted to introduce him to the fuzzy blue monster, Grover. But Raees got his attention more on Elmo.

So every day is Elmo day for my boy. We have a bunch of Sesame Street DVDs, but he has his favourites. Just look at his expressions...


Elmo surely helps keep him occupied when we parents have our hands full. Just strap him on the stroller with the DVD on and he's happy.

Also, it will definitely help with his vocabulary. He learnt 'Elmo' all by himself! But of course, we try to balance between TV time and play time.


Because of his fondness for that little monster, we got him a few Sesame Street books, toys and t-shirt. I'm plan to find a 'Tickle Me Elmo'. I remember they used to sell that many years ago. Is it still being sold now? I'm sure he'll love it and so will I! (this is the case of mak bapak yang lebih..hehe!)

So cute, Raees! instead of mommy, he said elmo!
dont worry, irin, my daughter can only calls people "abah", which is very menggeramkan coz her abah not even there. hehe

airin: kena selalu remind dia..mommy, mommy, mommy :D
