Wise Guy

Isn't it annoying when you come across Internet litter from moms who claim that their 6 month olds are doing long division or that their three year olds have already mastered five languages? I hope this post doesn't come across like that. I'm just proud of my little man.

This kid is counting up to five objects at a time. We're not just talking memorizing a string of words. I mean that he understands that four is more than three and that he can tell me how many cheerios or blocks or crayons are on the table. Well, up to five of them.

AND he's recognizing some letters. He'd been handing me a foam X in the bathtub and saying "K" (hey, they are pretty similar looking), but I was not expecting what happened at the library on Monday. The library puts down a cool rug for storytime. It's a world map surrounded by the letters in A-Z order. First he pointed to the H and said "H". I was surprised but thinking that he had a 1 in 26 chance of making a good guess and thought it could just be a coincidence. Then he pointed to the I beside it and said "I". Wow. I had to pick up my jaw to tell him that he was right, and I could see the lady sitting beside us do a double take. Today while we were working on the alphabet puzzle he labeled a few other letters as he placed them in their slots on the puzzle.

What a guy.

  2. Thanks, Caryn! And you're sweet not to call me obnoxious. ;-)

  3. Are you kidding? We waited years to have these babes. I would shout it from the rooftops. (honestly, I'm not that bad, but my mom is - she is totally a brag whore about the babes, lol)

    1. I think I may be the brag whore in our family. ;-)
