I just have to let this out! I am so amazed at what my little girl has learned to do in the last few weeks. It started about three weeks ago when she was eating her dinner and she picked up a pea and moved it off her plate and said 'one', then 'two' then 'three' and then another one and said 'four'! I had no idea that she had picked up numbers! I'm so glad my husband was there cos it was so random I don't think he would have believed me. So since then I got a wooden shape puzzle thing with numbers and some counting books, and she knows 1-10 just by 'reading' the number. I will set out some objects and ask her to count them and she does! It's so amazing! I can't believe that my little screaming bundle I bought home from the hospital is now a little person. She also knows her colours, and my favourite thing of all... She drew TWO APPLES and they look a bit like apples and she has a go at drawing shapes, she's pretty good at that too. It just blows my mind how fast they pick things up. I feel a bit out of my depth now though, like I have to actually teach her things?! Argh I hope I do a good job. I've also noticed much more tantrums than usual, and when she's fustrated or excited she squeezes her hands together and shakes I wonder what she'll be doing this time next month?? Writing sonnets and playing the piano I bet Would love to hear lots of bragging from other mums!
