So I'm not sure if I should be super impressed, impressed or just really proud (all is an option too) of Luke. Maybe you can help me because I have nothing to compare him to. Tonight while reading stories before bed Luke helped me read "Go Dog Go". And by helped I mean I would turn some pages and he would tell me all the words on the next page in the right order without any help from me. I don't think I would call this reading but more memorization on his part. It blew my mind!!! I know he would look at the pictures and go from there but still how does a 26 month old remember several pages of a book we read only sporadically?!?!? I would say he read 10-15 pages out of the 60 pages in the book. I think I'll go with really super impressed at this point.
One other impressive item of note--lately Luke has really been in to counting. He will randomly start counting at various times throughout the day. This also amazes me because it is not just 1, 2, 3 it's 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 (although he forgets 8 a bunch), 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 and sometimes more. Huh?!?!? We work on numbers a bunch but I've never gone over 10. I guess he really is paying attention to Sesame Street. The other part of this is that I can ask him what number comes next after say 5 without counting to 4 first and he'll say 6. It truly is amazing to me and makes me one proud momma.
