Somebody call Avery Coonley, I think baby b. is advanced. Maybe even gifted.

Just today he was pouring water from one cup into another, without spilling a drop. Never mind that he was sitting on the kitchen counter whispering “hot” when the water was clearly cold, at only seventeen months old, don’t you think that’s impressive?

And just this afternoon he was sorting things out into categories. Spoons in one spot, forks in another. Of course he was sitting IN the dishwasher. Minor detail.

Oh, yeah. He’s Avery Coonley all the way.

p.s. For the record, I have nothing against Avery Coonley or anybody who goes there or gifted children in general.

Wow - it appears that your boy may be almost (but not quite) as big a genius as my little angel. Congrats!

Of course he's gifted! Was there really ever any doubt? After all he has two brilliant parents and two gifted older brothers!

Oh, and so glad you added the link to the school... I didn't know what Avery Coonley was, but didn't want to look out of the loop by asking! (I just figured it was some new parenting philosopy that I hadn't heard of...)

I feel so enlightened now!

frazzmom -- always glad to help. :-)

don mills diva -- toddlers are a breed all their own, aren't they?

LOL--one of my favorite pics of my baby is of her cracking up while sitting on the open dishwasher door--had no idea she could climb before I found her there! Thanks for the great nighttime baby advice!
