Welcome to Rik's Blog. Rik is a US citizen living abroad in the most beautiful of places; Bella Italia. Ah, the pizza, the pasta, the wine, the seafood, the sun, the beaches, the mountains...
He is sooo cute! I like his expression while eating gelato but I think he is sick of eating papatini with catsup? Try it with mayo! Chloe saw his pix and she said ''owww baby''.
Is the ever adorable X-Man (you've just GOT to be bursting-buttons-proud) multi-lingual?
Ara - I love that picture of him eating the fries! He was so worn out from running around in the heat and humidity and it really shows in that pic.Kitty - Yes, he knows and understands most words in both English and Italian. The other night we were upstairs and my neighbor told him (in Italian), "Go give papa a kiss". Sure enough, he walked over and gave me a kiss on the cheek. If you tell him the same thing in English, he'll do the same. On top of that, he also understands some words in Tagalog (Virginia is a Filipina). And another friend of ours is trying to teach him French. The more languages the better I guess...Rik
My husband's daughter from wife #1 learned both German & English when they lived in Germany. She was about 3 when she returned to the states with her mother (but not her father). She thought she didn't recall any German until you asked her something in German, and then she remembered some, and I'm talking 10-15 years later.
