Baby Dog Continues to Be Smart

Today we took Baby Dog to the physical therapist again. We really could have skipped the appointment, since the girl is most definitely walking now, but it seemed like the thorough thing to do, and besides she seemed to enjoy herself last time. Sure enough, the therapist quickly confirmed that Baby Dog’s motor skills are at an age-appropriate level and that she’s achieved all expected milestones. We actually spent more time talking about Baby Dog’s verbal skills, which thoroughly impressed both the therapist we saw today and the one we saw last time, who happened to pass by in the middle of our session. At one point Baby Dog was looking at a multi-coloured ball, correctly pointing out each block of colours: “Yellow, red, or-ange, green, blue, white.” The therapist said she’d never encountered a less-than-two-year-old who could do that. This is a child development specialist saying this, mind, so I hope you’ll excuse me for being extra insufferably proud of my genius daughter.

Yeah, okay, Mozart was writing music at that age, whatever. She’s genius enough for us.

Now you can legitimately say she is a walking wonder!
