One going on Five

The last couple days we have been working on teaching Bailey to say how old she is. She turns 2 later this month, so we decided to start now so she might be able to say it by the time her birthday party rolls around.

It went a little something like this:

Me:        Bailey, how old are you?
Bailey:       (blank stare)
Me:         Bailey, how old are you?
Bailey:       (blank stare)
Me:        You're TWO! (holding up two fingers)
Bailey:       FIVE! (holding up all five fingers)
Me:         No, you're two! Yay, two!
Bailey:       FIVE! FIVE! FIVE!

So now every time I ask her how old she is, she immediately puts her whole hand up and shouts "Five!"

She has even modified her counting: "five" now comes after "one."

Apparently 5 is the new 2, and if it is, we sure are in trouble.
