maybe it's not a big deal, but i'm very impressed.
she's been asking me to write letters and numbers a lot. she likes it when i do and squeals with delight!
the other day i was writing letters and numbers, and she was naming them very happily. but she was sitting across from me. she even got the 6 and 9 right and M and W (ID'ing them from my perspective).
somehow i just found this really surprising, once i realized she was seeing them upside down (took me awhile to really realize this--which i guess probably shows she didn't get her spatial skills from her mother
she'll be two next month. isn't the whole developmental thing of seeing things from another person's perspective supposed to be later (which is why kids often get pronouns confused, and for awhile assume you can see whatever they're looking at)?
or maybe this is typical. i dunno.
ETA: well, i mean, it's definitely not typical, in that most 23 month olds don't know all their letters and numbers to begin with. however, the perspective thing, i don't really know but it seems kinda crazy to me.
