Gisèle counted yesterday! She's been saying her numbers for a while ("one, two, five!"), but this was the first time she counted with no prompting from Jamie or me. We were sitting at the table participating in one of her favorite pastimes - looking at pictures of babies on the computer. One page came up that was actually two pictures of the same baby, side by side. With no prompting from me, she stunned me by saying "one... two babies!" My mouth dropped open and I looked over at Jamie to be sure I hadn't imagined my 20 month old counting before we both praised her. A few pages later, there was a set of three pictures side by side. This time I asked - "Gisèle, how many babies do you see?" and she answered "one....two... free!" Much rejoicing, and yes - a few happy tears - ensued.

I know I'm (extremely) biased, but my baby girl is a genius. :)

That's amazing! How did she learn that so fast, I wonder. Yay, Gisele! She's so cute and amazing!
