She doesn't have them all down but she knows many of the colors, shapes, numbers, letters. She can count a little bit if you help her over the numbers she forgets She loves puzzles and the shape/color ones are her favorites
Beau is kind of nuts. He is OBSESSED with numbers and letters, and has been basically ever since he could talk. We have about 5 electronic-alphabet type toys that will spell things aloud for you, and Beau just sits there by himself with them every chance he gets and practices spelling words to himself. He would do it all day if we let him. He has memorized the spellings of probably close to 100 words now. The other day he read aloud his first book to me. I've also seen him sound-out new words for the first time. We're not pushing him on this at all, it's just his own personal obsession.
He also loves numbers, but his counting is somewhat erratic. He can basically count up to 100, but when in doubt he just makes up his own patterns. For example, he'll say "seventy-eight, seventy-nine, seventy-ten!" It's really cute.
He basically knows his colors, too, though he always mixes up purple and blue. So does my older son, actually. I think they both might be a bit red-green color blind. (Both my husband and my brother are.)
No idea on shapes. I've never really quizzed him on them, but he's probably learned them in preschool.
Thank you to the SSMC makers for my beautiful siggies!
Will can say his colors, but he doesn't always get it right. If you ask him what color something is, he usually just says "blue", and then when you said it's red or whatever, he'll say "Oh, red". He counts to 3. LOL. I need to start working on his shapes too.

Kynslee knows 1-10 and her abc's and a star, heart, circle are the only shapes she knows so far. We are working on colors but she only knows the names (like blue can be red orange, purple, ...) and not the actual color. She's very talkative and you can understand her very well.
