"Yay!" comes after 10 at my house...

I was extremely proud when Lilli learned to count to 10. Not because I thought this was some genius level phenomenon for an (at the time) 18 month old, but because I was happy that she could say all the numbers fairly clearly. Elizabeth kept skipping five and nine and butchering "seven" at first, so I wasn't able to actually determine the first time she counted to 10 with the numbers making sense the whole way. Although Elizabeth could recognize all of the numbers by the time she was Lilli's current age no matter how she pronounced them, and as far as I can tell Lilli only recognizes some of them.

Anyway, apparently I was so proud that, other than share the joyous news with one or two people, I have done absolutely nothing about it for the last two months. But I did tell C I was going to take a video of it, and put in on here, and then I never got around to it. But tonight I took one. The usual thing with the bad lighting and poor quality, but at least Lilli is nice and loud.

So, since I find myself without a topic for the evening... TA DA! Lilli counts!

She loves the camera. She's almost always happy to pull out a cheesy grin for me and ham it up.

It just can't compete with the Wonder Pets though.

ADORABLE!!! Those darn Wonderpets! Now when the phone rings, my little one says, "The phone. The phone is ringing." He is a little smart alec, too.
