Best Christmas gift of the day

I will write about the outstanding gifts that my wife gave me later today (they really are outstanding), but the best Christmas gift that I have received thus far has been listening to my 23-month old daughter count to 20 for the very first time.

And then the second time. 

And then a third time.

And now I think she’s just showing off.  

I managed to coax her into counting for the camera (by doing a little counting myself), but she did so while stuffing Cheerios in her mouth, so she wasn’t at her best. 

She counted perfectly at least three times before I tired to capture it on film.  

Maybe we can get her to count to 100 before she turns two.
