telling the time

Crystal is 1 year 10 months 11 days

this few days, everytime during dinner, i ask Crystal what time it is. she will look at the clock and say, half pass seven. yes, most of the time, we dine around 7.30pm.
i think she has learnt that 7.30 is dinner time.

yesterday, on 7.15 i ask her:
mom : Jing-jing, look at the clock, what time is it now ?
Crys : 7 o'clock.
mom : it's 7.15
1 minute later:
mom : Jing-jing, what time is it?
Crys : 7.15 (daddy and grandma heard it and laughed)

on 7.30, i asked her again
mom : Jing-jing, look at the clock, what time is it now?
Crys : 6 pass 7.
mom : no. it's 7.30 . 6 means half.
Crys : 6 pass 7
mom: no. it's half pass seven
Crys : half pass seven

after 10pm
mom : Jing-jing, what time is it now?
Crys : 3 pass 10
mom : no. it's 15 pass 10.
Crys : 15 pass 10.

another 15 minutes went by.
mom : Jing-jing, look at the clock, what time is it now?
Crys : 6 pass 10
mom : no. it's half pass 10.
Crys : (playing with our new TV carton box) half pass 10... it's already time to sleep.
(mom, dad & grandma laughed)


while she was around 4 months old, i often asked her, "what time is it now?" she would find and look at the clock in our living room. she started to differ the numbers 0-9 when she was around 14 months. she learnt from the playing mattress, which is quite popular in china.
