Just trying not to forget

Dylan reads the letter O. Then, he looks at the pictures and says them
A-kah = Oscar
Akapuss = Octopus. Try correcting him by saying it correctly and he'll look at you and say, "ahkah-puss, mommy".

Then today, he drew a spiral on paper. No joke, I watched him do it. It was pretty darn amazing for a 2 year old.

He also says "no thank you" now. I never taught him that. Thank goodness the teachers are definitely more polite than his parents.

Hmmm what else? He knows A, B, C, K, O, P, Q, S and maybe some others that come and go. He know 1, 2, 5, 13 consistently and the rest are fleeting. He definitely knows colors (even silver, gold and purple). He also knows his shapes (including diamond, oval, heart, and moon). Sadly, no octagon, pentagon, trapezpoid. We've got work to do (kidding).

And he knows how to play the toddler games on the iPhone.

How do 2 year olds do this. I could not have ever imagined that 2 year olds could know all this stuff. I figured the bossiness was normal but all this reading stuff is blowing my mind.

I have been catching up on some kyrgz adoptive families. We are a former kyrgz family (before adoptions halted) who live in Simi Valley.We are now adopting a 2 year old boy from Russia.Would be fun to connect with one another.
