In How Many Languages Can You Count?
Tubby is bilingual. Having a Swedish speaking papa and an English speaking mama make him so. We have been counting fingers and toes for a long time now and it has finally paid off! Today while explaining that our recycling truck will be here in one week, I counted seven fingers. When I had completed my counting, Tubby said, "eight, nio, tio."
After hysterically laughing, I realized he understands that I was counting and the proper sequence of numbers. I am not sure how much a two and a half year-old is supposed to know, but I am giddy about this accomplishment :) Tubby can count in two languages.
