I swear I'm not making this up!

I swear on my life I'm not making this up! My husband told me I lied when I told him what Gage, my 19 month old said.

He was eating dinner and talking to himself when I heard him say, one, two, three. That wasn't that big of a deal. I knew he could count to 3. He can even count to 3 in Chinese (Thank you Ni Hao, Kai-Lan!)

So I bent down to his level and went one... he said two... three... I said four... he said five... I said six... then he said seben. (he said it so cute!)

I pretty much freaked out! I didn't think to keep going, I was just amazed that he counted to seven! I ran in the library where hubby was and told him. He asked me if I kept counting with him and I said no I got excited and ran in here! So he says here watch this. He goes in the dining room and tries to get him to say it again. Nope. Every time hubs says a number, Gage holds up a chicken nugget and says EAT!

Hubby looks at me and says, he didn't say it. You're making it up. Why would I make something like that up? I wanted to smack him. As soon as hubby leaves the room, he did it again. Of course he did.

I called my mom to tell her what happened. Then I sit down in front of him with her on the phone and he did it again all the way to 9! Hubby came back in, sat down, and tried yet again to make Gage do it in front of him. Again Gage refused. This time though he stuck his finger in the chicken nugget and holding it up for hubby to see! I told him I had a witness that time though! My mom heard it perfectly! I'm going to try to get it on video next time to share with you all, it was so cute!

I had no idea he could do that! He surprises me every day with the things he does.

That's really cute! I remember one day when my logan shocked me by counting in spanish. we had just been in the car and had heard that dumb "pretty fly for a white guy" song and there's this part that goes "uno dos tres cuatro cinco cinco seis" and I was kind of singing it, and i said "uno dos tres" and logan finsihed counting to ten in spanish. i was blown away until he told me he learned it from Dora. Of course! :)

kids.... they're amazing with how much they absorb!
