Smarty Pants

Since starting school less than 3 weeks ago, Hannah has become a genius.

Ok, so maybe she was a smart girl to begin with or maybe hitting the 18 month mark has made her mature, but the differences we have seen in her since the end of August are amazing.

She has added tons of new words to her vocabulary. She can identify almost every part of her body. She can name the sounds various animals make. So cute!

But for me, the most exciting part of watching her become a braniac has been seeing the associations she makes. A few examples:
  • When she hears Winston's collar clinging in the morning she immediately goes to the front door and says "walk"
  • Today, she got into her semi squatting bathroom pose and proceeded to say "peepee", "potty". Now I know she knows the difference between a number one and two but potty is definitely not a subject that has been covered in our curriculum at home (yet).
  • And finally my favourite. The other day her dad showed her this video of a dog doing the merengue. Today I asked her if she wanted to watch a video thinking she would opt for a vacation recap on the ipad. But she immediately went into the office and said "doggie". I said "doggie dancing?" and she started wiggling in her usual dance moves.
So cute...and so smart! I can't wait to see (and hear) what she comes up with next!
