Colorful gal

Wow, I taught a class down near Ohio for the past week. I return and find out that Ellie can identify and say many colors. While taking a bath, I ask her to look at some colored cups and she knew yellow, blue, and purple (that is all there were). I’ll try other colors tomorrow — this just amazed me. She also can whistle (not really, but she tries and makes a blowing sound). She can count to 3 without any prompting. Maybe it is just me, but I am sure she is the smartest baby in the world. Paula commented recently that Ellie is great at playing by herself — she likes exploring and understanding her own little world. Paula also thinks that Ellie will be much better off on her own without our intervention (I wonder if that is a knock on me). 😉
