Tonight, Oliver counted to 5 for the first time!! Hooray!
In the past month or so, he's been able to identify almost all the numbers one through nine, except for seven. Apparently, seven is hard. We've been practicing counting with him a lot with various books, or our fingers. But when he'd try to "count" something it was usually "one, one, one, one" or random numbers but not pointing at things. But tonight, for the first time, he actually pointed to the five things in the book and really counted each one of them: one, two, three, four, five. I'm so proud. ::sniff:: My boy is growing up!
