Our daughter, Ivy, is so brilliant! We have been working on counting very hard and she has picked it up very well. Today she picked up the TV remote, started pointing to the numbers and counting - "1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10." Obviously there is no 10 on our remote, she just knew that it came next. My wife and I were so proud and we started clapping for her. Ivy was so proud of herself!
She is 26 months old and we have known for awhile that she had some autistic tendencies (delayed milestones, minimal speech, flapping, texture issues, etc.). At 2 years old, she received her official diagnosis and we starting being proactive about her cognitive development and speech. The progress that she has made in only two months is nothing short of inspiring to us.
