When your child gets to the age of two, you are doing everything to teach them their colors, shapes, ABCs and 123s. You sing the Alphabet song to them, whenever you feel like they are listening. You read them books and point out each number and show them the amount on your hands. You point out the color shirt they are wearing and tell them that the ball they have in their hands is a circle.
My baby brother learned his alphabet pretty early. He still stumbles a little, but he is four. He loved books were he can go through the alphabet and say their names, all by looking at them. Now he can count to ten, although sometimes he skips over eight, and LOVES counting down to special occasions.
It is really cute to hear the little man count things, while you put things in the grocery cart. “Sissy, you got three of them?”
Recently he has learned a little about time and since his favorite number right now seems to be 10, you’ll hear him say, “10 more minutes.”
