Making Norimaki

Here's a video of Lily wrapping rice in nori (laver/seaweed).  After putting the rice on, she says Big and then (in Japanese) I made it.  When she puts it in her mouth she repeatedly says (in Japanese) I wrapped it.  At the end, she says (in Japanese) More!

Singing songs with actions

Lily loves singing songs and is often demanding that we sing songs with her.  Here are two videos of Ayako singing some songs with Lily.  Since Lily has only recently learnt the songs, she's not so good at keeping the actions up with the words, but it makes for some cute videos.

Walking for a month

Just thought I'd show how Lily is coming along with her walking skills these days.  She definitely has more confidence.
