New Toys

Since coming to Thailand Tira has gotten a bunch of new toys. The latest addition is the ridiculously cute pink elephant we bought today at the Thai Craft Sale!

Because there's not carpet in Thailand we had to find something so that she could play on the floor. We ended up buy this plastic/foamy mats that link together like puzzle pieces. She loves to play on them:

When auntie rissa got here she brought with her Tira's delila from etsy. Isn't it cute also hand made!

And finally Tira got some new books in Thai! Both are the plastic material that is good for chewing on and makes it so baby can read in the bathtub! One is about animals under the sea and the other is about the sounds animals make. It's great because Thai animals don't make the same sounds as American ones. For example an american dog goes woof woof or bark bark, where as a Thai dog goes hong hong. An american rooster goes cock-a-doodle-do but a Thai rooster goes eggy-eggy-egg! LOL!

Just a side note - today Tira had all her toys sitting in front of her on the mat and what do you think she chose to play with? The empty cardboard tube from a roll of paper towels! Humph!
