Dos Pas!

Si Sumahi ha disehahayi hamyo ni' este (pas) para i Nuebu na Sakkan!

Sumahi already speaks three languages, but I'm considering enrolling her in Japanese school to learn a fourth one, so that can improve her chances of becoming either a J-Pop star or an actress in Japanese movies.

I may have at one point though that this would be a ridiculous idea, but that was before I realized that at her age she can pick up languages very easily, and that she looks exactly like the little girl from the live action version of the Japanese film Grave of the Fireflies.

I would be more excited about this similarity in how they look, except for the fact that the girl from Grave of the Fireflies dies a very tragic death.

Sumahi's First "Standing" Protest

Sumahi has been to protests before, but never as an active standing participant.
The protest at the ITC intersection last week about the release of the EIS for the military buildup was her first.

Sumahi's New Favorite Movie

Since Sumahi was small, we had brought her to many different movies. There weren't any particular movies that she really likes, there might be parts of a movie that she likes but never enough to catch her attention for more than 15 minutes.

Instead of watching movies, Sumahi's favorite thing to do is to watch videos on YouTube, and the videos of an MTV of Coldplay, Shamu, and Dora the Explorer especially. She likes to see things that she knows, and would ask her daddy to find a video for her on YouTube. Some of the things she really loves are (other than the above mentioned): puppies, horses, guitars, monkeys, cars, and guns.

Since Sumahi loves monkeys and cars, I popped in "Speed Racer" in to the DVD Player for her last week. It had since became Sumahi's favorite movie. She is frequently asking "where's the monkey?" whenever the monkey is not on the screen.

Here's Sumahi's favorite part of the movie

Akli'e' the Master Blaster

We have a new addition recently to our family: Akli'e' Chan Bevacqua.

He was born on August 2nd at 4am in Sagua Managu. At birth, he was 7 lb. and 12 oz. and 21 in. tall. He is now currently 2 months old, and weigh 14 lb. and 6 oz. and 24.5 in. tall.

With Akli'e' in the house, Sumahi is frequently fighting for attention, and became even worse as the Terror that she already was. Although Sumahi is jealous of her little brother, there's no doubt that she loves him dearly, for she would always ask for Akli'e', asks to kiss and hug him, and loves to yell "Bula take' guini!" (There's a lot of poop) whenever I change Akli'e's diaper.

Though out the years, we had given Sumahi many nicknames, and the same goes for Akli'e'.

He is:
Sachin (Daddy's favorite cricket player)
the Master Blaster (describing the frequent and powerful pooping action)
the Sleeping Dragon
the Eating Monster
Chelu ('brother' in Chamorro)
La-E-E (the way Sumahi pronounces his name)
Huang Zhong (one of the Five Tiger General of Shu in the 3 Kingdoms Era of China)

Akli'e' and Sumahi each with their own godmother in the Santos family

2. The Obstructor of Tasks

3. The Interferer of Gatherings

Sumahi and the JBs

Sumahi doesn't just look like her Auntie Alina, she also takes after her in terms of musical taste. Sumahi really enjoyed the Jonas Brothers 3-D Movie, dancing around and rubbing her belly with one hand as if she's playing a guitar.

There's no word yet, whether or not Sumahi will soon become a Twilighter like her Auntie.

Sumahi the Door Swinger

Like most kids her age, Sumåhi is obsessed with things appearing and disappearing.

She loves doors, and constantly forces everyone around her to operate and act as if they are doors, performing actions repeatedly and reliably, just like the way a door opens and closes. This is the case whether its climbing up and down stairs, playing peek-a-boo, or throwing things and making you bring them back to her.

Sumahi is getting more and more spoiled and fussy as she approaches her second year. This video shows my approach in dealing with her increasingly bad behavior:
