It's becoming more and more obvious that Jonah's an extremely bright 20-month-old. His teachers at daycare are constantly amazed by his actions and vocabulary. And after spending another week with him, so am I.
There doesn't seem to be anything I can say to Jonah that he doesn't understand. And I have no problem understanding what he's saying. Jonah has an amazing vocabulary, speaks clearly, and uses full sentences. But, best of all, he wants to learn. Last night while daddy was reading to him, Jonah pointed to a picture of a butterfly and said, "say." Finally Mike figured out Jonah wanted to know what it was. When Mike said, "butterfly," Jonah clearly repeated the word. I'm betting he'll never have to be told again.
We always suspected Jonah's brother, Elliott, was above average, which his Kindergarten teacher has now confirmed. But I honestly don't remember Elliott's language skills being at the level of Jonah's at the same age.
For sure, Elliott wasn't as easy going. Jonah just seems to love life. He's an overall cool kid and I'm glad I'm his grandma.
