Blindsighted by Genius-ness!

My goodness! Where has the time gone?  I thought that once I went on maternity leave, I would have more time to post on this blog.  Instead it's been the opposite, but I should get back on normal footing soon.  You see, here at Golden Dreemz we're freaking out that the baby could come any second (I'll explain more in my 36 Week Update post) so we've (And by "we", I mean mostly Hubby) been getting our still-under-construction house ready for little Mateo's arrival.  Throw in a busy holiday such as Thanksgiving into the mix, and voila!  Blog neglect...

I do have a few blog posts lined up, but for now I wanted to give you a quick update on Diego at 22 months.  The low down is that he still barely speaks English (or even Spanish for that matter), but I was seriously caught off guard with an unexpected proud mama moment:  You guys!  He knows his ABC's!  And not the song, but the actual letters!  Like - he really KNOWS them.  And it's all thanks to his Fisher Price Fun 2 Learn Learning Laptop!  The one I bought him for our airplane ride to the Bahamas months ago.  The one he plays with EVERY day.  He's on his way to winning the Nobel Peace Prize folks!

I explain and capture the "miracle" in the video below.  But after some thought and skepticism, I thought that maybe he was just associating the shape of the letters.  (Some unconditional-loving mom I'm turning out to be!)  So I asked him to type his name (with me dictating the letters of course).  OMG.  D.I.E.G.O.  When did this happen????

How amazingly awesome!!!! Way to go Diego! That indoor play place looked pretty cool. I see he retired the toy guitar and has become more serious in his musical abilities, haha. Great video and update!!!
