...and I thought somebody was going to have to scrape me off the floor when it happened! Younger sibs have such different exposure to the reading/counting stuff than the older ones did. Griff is always using numbers, so Reese has been hearing people count nearly constantly, his whole little life.
Well, today Griff and I were counting to 5. Then I went to the stove to stir our soup for lunch. Suddenly this little voice starts counting "one...two...three..." and went all the way to ten! I couldn't do anything but stop and stare at him and ask Griff, "did Reese just count to ten?"
He did. He counted to 13 a few minutes later. And then again when I was on the phone with Dan, calling him to tell him what Reese did.
I love the language/cognitive explosion at this age!
