My five month old son can turn the pages of his books when we read stories

Is he a genius?

  • LOL mine does that too. Except he usually turns the page before I'm done reading it! He amazed me when he got a book for Christmas and actually opened it up and starting turning the pages. I have a picture of it :-)

  • Idk, my DD could do that at 3 months no joke. She is very advanced, but I wouldn't say genius.

  • Genius? You'll have to wait until he's older and have his cognitive skills tested. Sounds like he's doing well with his fine motor skills, though.

  • whatever he is.. he's a great baby! That's really awesome, different kids master different skills earlier than others.. mine was holding her own bottle at 4 months. It's really kewl that he can do that tho!! It will be interesting to see if he indeed is a smarter than the average kid!

  • my son did that at that age too so i think it pretty norm but congrads anyways.. at that age my son was already crawling and if i read to him now all he wants to do with the book is eat the pages
