Three Things

First…

HAPPY STAR WARS DAY!!!

Second…

In celebration of Star Wars Day, Lucasfilm has announced all of the details about the upcoming Star Wars Blu-ray releases (set for September 16). You can either purchase the complete saga with all the movies included, or the original trilogy or the prequels separately.

The discs will include an insane 40 hours of special features. So while I’m still a bit pissed with George Lucas for tampering with the original films (and the Blu-ray releases will most likely include the altered versions of the movies), I am thoroughly excited about owning these new editions of my favorite film saga.

Please check Geek Tyrant for more details!

Third…

Claire’s behavioral problems in the past months were definitely related to her teething. Because almost as soon as her first teeth popped out, she returned to her normal self. Don’t get me wrong — she’s still demanding and high-spirited, but she no longer cries for (seemingly) no reason. And she has returned to waking up only once per night.

My baby is back.  :mrgreen:

Here is a video I took yesterday of my trying to get her to say “umma” (“mommy” in Korean). Her first syllables were Bs and Ps, so she has been babbling “baba” (“daddy” in Chinese) and “appah” (“daddy” in Korean) a lot. She only just started to say “mama” on occasion, so “umma” can’t be too far behind…right?

(And yes, we are fully aware that she probably has no idea what these words mean. We just like to pretend she does.)

Enjoy!

    Wow I am from India and we say “amma” for mother and “appa” for father too (in my native language not Hindi):-) Claire is adorable!

    • Thanks, Jan! I don’t know if you know this, but I once read that many cultures have very similar words for “mommy” and “daddy” because the first syllables that babies first learn tend to be M’s, B’s, and P’s.

  3. So cute! I have to admit that I laughed a bit at her saying ‘appah’ every time you tried to get her to say ‘umma’. Stubborn, I see! :)

    May the 4th by with you and your family as well!

  4. Aww, I can hear her tempting to say umma in her own way which shows she’s listening. Amen! She is such an adorable baby =)
