Not knowing what to do next, Michael bought her a US map/puzzle for ages 8 and up. We thought it would just be a toy for now... oh no. She can identify 10 states and tell you who is from each one. In her terms: Texas (Pink, Bop, Mommy, Brother, Stella) Louisiana (Daddy (he was born there)), Oklahoma (Grandma Q), Indiana (Gigi), Kansas (Gabby), Utah (Aunt Annie and Uncle "Teve"), Colorado (Uncle Tim), Florida (Mickey Mouse), Georgia (Tiffany) and California (its just big and purple thus easy to remember).
I am very proud of her of course, but am completely floored at the things she knows. Maybe this is normal. I have no idea. Oh! AND last night while I was composing this post, Stella was eating a biscuit. She bit it into the shape of a dog and was trying to tell us that it was a puppy. We were like, no that's a biscuit. She kept saying, "No, puppy!" We looked and sure enough it looked exactly like a dog! What?! So weird. I freaked out and tried to take a picture, but she bit its head off before I could get the camera. Who knows what she'll do next.
