Superbaby 15 weeks tomorrow

Well the unrest is not stopping. Last night was scary as hell as the pro-government and anti-government protestors really went to battle. There is chaos as I type this still going on in Tahrir Square in downtown Cairo. I fear tomorrow Friday will be even more deadly. God how I hope I am wrong....

Superbaby will be 15 weeks tomorrow and is growing so much. He has found his hands and "talks" alot. He is really vocal when we talk to him and is making the cutest sounds ever. More and more sounds as the days pass.

I think he will be an early talker. I say this depsite the fact that a friend of mine told me "don't be discouraged if Superbaby starts talking late as it has been shown that babies exposed to more than one language start talking later..."

Superbaby will hear Arabic and English in our household. We want him to learn Chinese as well. Super S speaks many languages and also wants to teach Superbaby Spanish and German, I told him lets start off with English and Arabic and see how he does LOL. I have many friends who spoke more than one language when their kids were little and they grew up understanding and speaking both. As far as Chinese, we will have to find a tutor as neither of us speak Mandarin. I think I will go with him too as I would love to learn, if I can LOL.

So just a quick update, all is still quiet where we are thank God. Continue to pray that the madness gets better soon as this is unbelievable to be happening in a normally safe, yet crazy city.


  1. Thank you for your updates. I have followed your blog for some time now. My family and I have been praying for your family's (and other's) safety. I pray that the chaos will end soon. Be safe!

  2. I'm so glad to hear from y'all and that you are ok. I've been following the situation and praying for you.

  3. I'm looking forward to reading about your experiences with raising Superbaby in a bilingual environment. That's our plan too. I've read that in order to develop your baby's brain and speech in the best way possible you should always speak to him/her in your first language, which in my case is swedish and my husband's american english.

    Stay safe and take care of yourself and family!

  4. Your baby is going to have sooo many opportunites! That's simply awesome!

    I am hoping you guys remain safe...I saw that things had escalated, but knew you are outside town. Stay safe!

  5. I'm so glad to hear another update from you! I was so worried after seeing the news broadcasts last night and am thankful to hear you're okay.

    That's awesome you guys are planning to teach super baby multiple languages, that is one thing I wish I was raised with and definitely feel is important for children to learn!

    Keep us posted and praying that you continue to be safe!

  6. How in the world did I miss that you'd have your beautiful baby!?! Congrats and prayers to you during all this chaos over there.

  7. Glad to know you are all okay.

  8. We've been exposing Ginny to a bit of German and French, but sadly she will have to wait until she's in school to get any real depth in the languages, as neither of us remember much of either.

    Thank you for posting updates... we have been praying that you and your family will be kept safe.

  9. I hope the protesters go back to being non-violent. Wishing your country peace and stability...

    What fun for Superbaby to learn multiple languages! He'll be very accomplished. Fantastic!

  10. Good to know you are all managing despite the unrest! Super baby sounds like such fun! Glad you are enjoying him despite all the troubled!

  11. I can not believe he is 15 weeks already, WOW, time really does fly doesn't it? He sounds amazing and I am so jealous that he will know so many languages, I think that's incredible.

    I am glad you are ok...thinking of you constantly.
    Hugs, love and lots of "SAFE" thoughts.


  12. So glad to see this posting and hear that you are all safe, you are all never far from my thoughts.

    I love the multiple language goal - From what I have heard, as long as kids are exposed by age 6, the language has a better chance of "sticking". I love hearing about his accomplishments and can't wait to hear more.

    Keep us posted.

  13. Been thinking about you, hon, and hope you continue to be okay. Stay safe.

  14. Been thinking about you a lot, glad you're all safe!
