Hold your head up high, Gemma! You are the winner. Gemma (the boys' paternal grandmother) correctly guessed -- very quickly, I might add -- that Connor can count up to 14 without missing any numbers. I was trying to wait a few days to see if anyone else had some creative guesses before I gave away the answer, but since I knew Gemma was dying to know, I decided to end the suspense.
I would love to show you a video of Connor's counting skills, but lately, he is only interested in seeing the video rather than starring in one when I bring out the camera. It's a hard concept to explain to an almost-two-year-old: no, you can't see yourself while you are being recorded, silly. For now, you will just have to trust me that he can count to 14. And you can also trust me that hearing him do it is oh, so cute.
