In the past month Forrest has really been showing off his cognitive abilities. It's amazing to me that in only 8 months he already knows more than Lotus! Of course there are a lot of things Lotus can do that he can't, like walk and sleep, just to name a couple. But Forrest can already open cabinets and drawers, which is more than Lotus can ever hope for. I just have to keep my fingers crossed that they don't start working together too much. Forrest also recognizes more words than Lotus, though perhaps not quite as many as yeye and nainai would like to think. He definitely knows mom and dad's picture, the big train in the kitchen, the painting of Lotus. We can tell because when you say it, he will turn and look at that thing! He also looks at the clock when you ask him what time it is. So far he hasn't learned to actually answer the question though. And of course, everyone in the house thinks it's just hilarious that he only knows these things in Chinese and doesn't understand any English!
