1 - Tonight I asked him to pick up his grapes off the floor and put them in the garbage. As he picked them up, he counted them. One. Two. Then he walked over and put them in the garbage. Oh. Actually, he put them on the wrong side so they ended up in the container that holds the empty garbage bags... close enough.
2 - That boy can spot a plane in the side smaller than the head of a needle. He'll point to the sky and say "plane, plane" and if I squint and look really hard I see a small grey plane wayyyyyyyyy up in the sky.
Brilliant, I say! (I say that as a mom who's not comparing him to anyone else, I just mean he's growing up and now he can say words, on purpose.. It's amazing.)
