Yordi likes to say "English, no. Amharic." when she doesn't understand something. Today, we heard an exchange between the kids that was completely in English. I hope that they will keep their Amharic... they have a good chance since they have each other and they are older.
One of the cute sayings Yordi uses all the time is "oooh... big head." What she means, of course, is "long hair". I didn't want to forget that, because she said it again today, and I realized she may soon say "long hair" and that day will be kind of sad. She really wants long, straight hair. I haven't gotten it across to her that a) it will involve growing her hair out, and b) it will take an incredible amount of work to get her curly, curly, curly hair to be straight.
