A to Z


This is going to be one of those ridiculous boasting parent posts.

But really, Nora never stops amazing me. I hadn’t heard her say anymore than ABC and then tonight in the bathtub she just whips out the whole alphabet. And she can, by the way, count to ten, too.

I just have to say, human development is one of the most amazing things. Especially, when you know nothing about it.

While in college, I took a few developmental psychology courses, but honestly, I don’t remember much. Before I had Nora, it had been quite a while since I was last around an infant or toddler. I purposely don’t read any of the books or websites that report on milestones or when children are supposed to do certain things; reading that information would, most likely, just make me stressed out or potentially paranoid unnecessarily. We are around enough kids her age and take her for all her check ups that I know we would be able to catch any delays; beyond that I rather like not knowing when things should be learned or skills developed. It’s like opening a wonderful surprise present every time she does something new.

And yes, in case you were wondering, new skills are still just as exciting as they were when she learned to do this:

I don’t think I can imagine a time when I won’t be head-over-heals in love with and amazed by our little munchkin. Which means, I apologize in advance for the bragging I’ll be doing for mundane things like brushing her own teeth, doing her homework on time, and signing up for social security.

    Oh my! What an adorable little cutie! I’m glad she made it all the way to Z (being a Z myself I get a little sensitive about being left out :-). I remember my brother used to combine LMNOP into one giant run on word which sounded pretty funny and cute. Fortunately he learned how to break them into individual letters by the time he went off to college. 😉
