Finding Words

I know she's ours, but I'm so impressed with how smart this little girl is!!!

Gracie got this book for her 1st Birthday from Eric (he's 2 months older than G) and his parents, Tania & Dave, our French Canadian friends in Moncton. It's called "First Words" and we "read" it all the time. It's a big book with big, colorful pictures of lots of different things like food, animals, shoes, and toys - some are just pictures on the pages and others are flash cards that come out of the book.

We've always asked Gracie to point to or identify the pictures in the book and we've taken the cards in & out lots of times before...but today....I decided to flip the flash cards over and started to say & spell the words...she quickly picked up the correct card to go with the word we said! I'm sure the shapes of each object on the cards also help her figure which thing we're asking for but I also really think she's starting to identify letters/words and maybe even beginning to read!!!!

Regardless of how she's doing it, we're very proud of her!!!

And what about that tongue??? Guess it helps her concentrate - just like her Daddy!

How is she doing that? Holy cow, enroll her in mensa now! I love the way her tongue wags when she's concentrating. :)
