So for as long as I can remember I've heard people talk about babies and say they are too smart for their age.
I can honestly say that of my 3 boys I really only saw that in my oldest. (at 4 he read on a 2nd grade level).
That being said I always thought it was just a phrase you know. Babies are babies, they may be curious and stuff but i personally have not come across a genius baby, or so I don't think I have. Then there's DD.
Ever since DD was born she's showed little signs here and there that she's smarter than I give her credit for being.
DD is 16 months old and she does the following things that boggle me sometimes lol:
*Wipes her own nose (not in a sliding across the face motion either. It's nice and neat)
*Immediately gets a clean diaper and brings it to you when she poos.
*Will try her best to strip off a diaper that has even a small amount of pee in it
*She knows how to unlock mine and dh's phones
*Goes in the kitchen, tiptoes to reach into the drawer and get her spoon, then brings it to me when she's hungry.
* She drags her "princess pony" (her purple pillow pet lol) out of her room, and into the living room so she can lay on it.
Various other things as well.
This isn't meant to be a "look at my baby" thing... .I NEED to know that other 16 month old babies do this!! None of my boys did any of this. None of it. I know for the most part each baby is different, but she just seems, for lack of a better word...smarter?
Moms? What are your 16month olds like?
