1 to 20 and 20 to 1

Damon quickly picked up counting to 10. (He may be a numbers guru like Daddy!) So naturally we moved on to counting to 20. That proved a little more difficult. He tended to forget 13 and 16. But about a month ago, he finally started saying all 20 numbers without any prompting.

Then we moved on to counting backwards from 20. He still needs a little coaxing, but he’s starting to figure it out. And here is the video proof!

He also can count to 49 without help. After that, he needs help with the tens. Thanks to two grandmas who are former teachers and a big sister who wishes she was a teacher, Damon is getting plenty of “classroom” instruction.
