Haddie always continues to amaze me as to how much she learns. Sometimes I’ll just tell her different things to see if she will remember them. So, if you hear her saying some of these things, please don’t think I’m drilling my child and trying to make her into a brainiac prodigy. I’m really not trying to pressure her into learning a ton at this age (she’s 21 months), but she picks up so much information and seems so eager to learn (she’s started to ask “what’s that?” about a lot of things). So, occasionally I will try to teach her things just to see if she will remember them. All of that said.. I was recently reading to her from Psalms and I tried to explain that Psalms is a book in the Bible and that it was written by David (at least mostly). In trying to explain who David was, I tried to associate with the story of David and Goliath since she already knows about that. Anyways…some of it stuck in her mind…only when I ask her who wrote Psalms she says Goliath! lol. Well, I tried to correct it and now she finally says David (at least most of the time you ask her). I still can’t believe how much she remembers!
