James magically learned to count to 10 several months ago. We had never worked on it he just all of sudden counted to 10 one day. I'm pretty sure his little phone he played with when he was potty training was the teacher for this skill. We decided since he could count to 10 we would work on counting to 20. We have counted with him several times and now he can basically count to 20. He often gets stuck on 14, skips 15 and never says 19 but he's 2 so I figure that's still pretty good. The other day Lee counted with James up to 30. The next day I heard him saying 24, 25, 26, 27, 28 (we also heard a 20-14). I think it is so neat that he seems to have figured out the basic pattern of counting. I had Kindergartners who couldn't do that! His little mind amazes me in some way every day.
