Also colours are an abstract concept, which is much harder to wrap your brain around at that age. If you show her an apple, then tell her it is an apple, she will know in future that things that look like that are apples.
But if you show her red, one day she will see a shirt, another an apple, another a piece of paper. That is a bit hard to figure out at first.
I am a little worried about his color vision, though, because the two he mixes up most often are red and green (which would be the most common form of colorblindness). But I don't think I'll really know for sure until he's older and I know he's not just confusing the words.
