No kidding! That's hard to believe Marci! I definitely could use some tips :)

Kristi said...

Ok, I'm in awe. That is amazing! How did you teach her that? My little guy is only a few months behind your little one and I can't imagine him being anywhere CLOSE to doing that!!!!!!!

Courtney said...

Oh Ellie, you are just too smart, we miss you!

Ju and Brack said...

Holy cow! She is amazing! Good work Marci. I do believe she gets it from her mama!

Candace said...

Oh my gosh she is so cute! And look at you go. She's barely walking and knows her ABC's. Good luck in Cali. I know you will do great.

She could teach a couple of my 1st graders a thing or two. Sweet little Caleb is sure struggling with the academics, but he's a sweet boy. My Evan from last year is really having a heck of a time. Still doesn't have his letters down. We'll get there somehow. It sure is nice to only have 1/2 for reading. I miss you tons. Hope the move went ok. Love you RaeAnn

Amy said...

wow- she's a genius!! How'd you teach her? I have to learn so I can pass the info along to Tiff, she'd love to get Reef going.

hope cali's treating you well!

Ashley Myntti said...

Finn is a little smarty pants like Ellie...now he can even WRITE some letters and he just barely turned two! Hooray for the Ellinator! I'm...so sorry for calling her that.

Ashley said...

Are you kidding me?!!!!

I'm feeling like a loser mom now! That is amazing!

Kristy said...

A-mazing! OP only says "ba", "ga", and "mama". Apparently I need to get on the ball! :)

Becca said...

Ellie is the smartest little girl ever. Seriously she knows so much. So fun to see her on camera. sniffle. I'm with everyone else on this, how do you do it? Is it a teacher secret that you can't share with the rest of us? I hope Bry has a love for learning or I might feel like a failure. :)

Kimberly said...

Holy Cow!!! Super cute! I love little Ellie. I just can't get over it. She is so smart!Great job Marce!....Wyatt just started talking. FINALLY! He says duck and yeah. He also nods and shakes his head. I'm glad cuz I needed him to communicate a little with me. Miss you friend and hope to talk with you soon! Love ya!

Dad and I have watched the video over and over and laughed our heads off! She's like those little babies that do the financial commercials... they made them look like they are talking like grownups! Know the ones I mean?
Ellie always makes us laugh...we miss you all and love you more and more! Good job in teaching Ellie... she is s sponge and probably loves it because you made it a game. Besitos to all!

Montgomery Family said...

kristen said...

I've never seen anything like that before. That's some serious motivation to be a better mom. Good work. What a smart little thing!

erin 'n phil said...

Shaylee said...

I have probably watched this a hundred times because I can't believe it!

jaci said...

this little girl needs to be on david letterman, or rachael ray or something!! You are freaking kidding me. It DOES look like you are putting those 20 years of education to good use!!

Lea Tame said...
