She's a Smartie

Remember this post? Finn knew all his letters by 20 months old and we attributed it to his love for Wheel of Fortune. Well, I guess Pat Sajack doesn't deserve the credit after all because we haven't watched that show forever and Kate (22 months) knows all her letters now too! I knew that she knew a few, but she surprised me a while ago by spouting them all off while I was reading her 'A-EEE-SEES!' (an alphabet story book that she likes to look at) Not only did she know all the letters, but she knows the name of every single picture in the book too. (Like, the mole on the 'M' page...what 1 1/2 year old knows what a mole is?) Letters are just something my kids' brains latch on to I guess. Like, Kate still hasn't figured out how to use the word 'yes' but she can tell a 'b' apart from a 'd'. Whatevs. We'll take what we can get! Finn was so cute praising his sister when she got a letter right. Watch the video at your own risk, I think it took up all 8 gigs on my memory card.

i only can pray that my kids will be half as funny as your kids. My husband and I laugh hysterically at your Finn-isims routinely. Thanks for sharing them!

I loved the video. The entire thing! Makes me feel like I was really there, listening to them "read." Way to go Kate & Finn!

I love Teacher Finn! His very first, "that's ri-ight!" was so so great! And, don't tell him I told you, but Taj still has trouble with his "bs" and "ds." She's amazing!
