Our babies are very, very, scarily clever people.
I know that at this point in her life Isobel is learning more things at a quicker pace than she will at any other time.
(Even more scary as I seem to unlearning things at an alarming pace too)
We don't make it easy for our babas:
First we tell them that this yellow plastic thing is a duck
Then we expect them to know that this green-brown feathered thing is also a duck
And they do it.
Then we teach them colours:
That this is blue
But so is this.
It really is abso-bloomin-amazing.
Ps. Isobel has taken to sleeping with a plastic duck. I think it is because she can say it, I understand it and therefore she gets it, rather than any early fetish on her part.
