Aidan amazes me everyday with what he knows. Out of the blue he will say something that I didn't "teach" him and he just picked it up. It is cool when those moments happen as it can be a little harder for kids like Aidan to learn incidental language. This is a video of Aidan counting to 5, using his book that has a number on each page and a picture on the opposite page. I got it for him for Christmas and we have looked at it maybe 1-2 times a week. We tend to count objects quite a bit but he sees the actual numbers less frequently, maybe 1-2x a week. I was shocked and amazed when he picked up the book and said each number on the page.
