When we were in Miami, Tristan started counting on his own. one, twhoo, free, see-ahx, nine-ahh, tee-hann! He did a pretty good job for knowing most of the numbers - even if he skipped some of them. :)
We were walking in the mall today and he started counting out of the blue without us prompting him: one, twhoo, free, foreah, five-ah.
Oh my goodness! Yes, I'm the mom that wants her son to be so smart...but he did it! He really did it all on his own. He counted to five all by himself. Nathan and I were so proud.
I wonder if he'll listen and retain so much when he's a teenager. ;)
