Counting

Ahhh, to be one and a half...

Me: Ava, how many toes do you have? Want to count them?
Ava: Uh-huh (nodding head yes)

Together: Onnne
Me: Twooo
Ava: Two
Me: Threeee
Ava: Four
Me: Foouur
Ava: Four
Me: Fiiive
Ava: Seven
Me: Siiix
Ava: Seven
Me: Seven
Ava: Nine!
Me: Eeeight
Ava: Nine!
Me: Niiine
Together: TEN!

We get there. Eventually. I can see that we need to work on those middle numbers. But hey, let's cut her some slack, she is only 1 1/2. Harvard can wait a few more years.

I keep telling everyone she is a genius! I can vouch for the bragging mom - Ava is counting now! You also ask her how old she is and she says one and holds up one finger. YIKES! I am dealing with my girls (13 & 15) being smarter than me but what happens when your 2 year old is smarter than you???? We shall see! Much love, Jo

What was wrong with her counting? Nine doesn't come after six? Damn, that's why I always sucked at math. But seriously? Your child sounds adorable. ~bluepoppy

I agree with Jo!! Ava is the smartest child!! She was counting wooden "apples..." one, two, four. When asked how old she is and the number one pops out of her mouth while holding up her "pointer" finger, it confirms what we continue to tell everyone...a brilliant child. My heart is fuller than I could ever imagine when she is visiting us or vice versa. Keep up the good job "Mom and Dad!"

Love, Linda
