Vivian is using more words these days, not always in a standard context.|
For example, "xie xie" (thank you) to her means:
Please take this random object which I am now handing you.
She probably remembers us saying "xie xie" when we feign gratitude for objects
which she has handed us in the past, and now associates the phrase with her
handing us things rather than the concept of gratitude, which is more abstract.
