She's almost 22 months old and she can name 9 colors by sight, we can hold up fingers and she can tell us how many we're holding up (up to five). She can recognize numerals (eg, 1, 2, 3 etc.). She'll make a pretend scowl face at us and if we make it back, she'll giggle and smile. She can stack up to 8 blocks high (not kidding) and throw over-handed.

She can't run, jump or kick yet. She has to sit to walk down stairs or off a stepped height.

Proud papa! :D

apparently, some of those things that she can do, most kids her age shouldn't be able to do for another couple of months.

...and here she is!

Sweet. :) Every reason to be proud.
Seems like she's an intelligent child.

I just adored that age. It is so amazing learning the world with a young toddler.

Oliva is a beautiful little girl. You deserve to be proud!

I wouldn't go that far. She's advanced in some areas, lacking in others.

ohhh it was a semi humorous comment digger - wasn't sure whether to put the :wink: in.

i think you're probably a great dad and she's a very lucky girl.
