Better Than the Jackson 5

ABCs and 123s. Sammi's got 'em! I keep meaning to post video of her doing her numbers and letters, as she's been doing them for quite some time now, but usually can't get the camera together in the short windows where she's being cooperative. It's always got to be on her terms. If we even attempt to get her to say her ABCs when she doesn't feel like doing them, she'll firmly shake her head and say, "Noooo". Puts me in my place! This video was pieced together by taking out all the extraneous chitchat and including a few extra bits and pieces. I also needed to keep it under 90 seconds to be able to post it on Flickr. (Sorry about the shaky camera--I can do still photography reasonably well, but definitely not videography!) The first part takes place in the kitchen in front of the dishwasher (she loves her reflection). In addition to being able to identify all 26 of the letters of the alphabet randomly, she can also recite them in order with absolutely no effort! She can also count to 13, and insists on counting EVERYTHING. :-)

That's Adorable!

BTW - if you get an account with Vimeo (www.vimeo.com) you get much more space for videos, and it's much less.... weird... than putting your kid on YouTube.

It is good to see such great parental involvement. That is wonderful that she is learning so well.
