...when he "reads" his books to you.
OK, so there are books we've been reading to him since he was a wee one that the little guy can recite page by page. That's not uncommon. But then this week, he really blew me away.
I bought him a new book last Saturday -- The Gingerbread Man. Wednesday night he "read" it to me! Not just the refrain part -- the whole damn book! Oh, he leaves words out here and there, sure. But I'm blown away by how much he remembers, verbatim, in this brand new book. I probably read it to him about twice/day, so a total of 8-10 times. Unfreakingbelievable. And oh-so-adorable too, I must say.
And today? He put his breakfast plate in the dishwasher.
I'm so amazed by what's possible at 2 1/2.
Does anyone have a tissue??
