One of the joys of having kids, is watching them learn. It's fascinating to witness the stages of learning and how they learn.
Yesterday, something profound happened. Georgia (2 years and 8 months) was showing me one of her reading books, which is learning to count with babies on each page. She points to one of the pictures and says "Looks Like Jay". "Yes, Georgia the baby looks like Jay." And then it suddenly hit me. That is incredible!! A 2½ year old knows that a picture looks approximately like her 6 month old brother. It's not her brother, it's not completely different from her brother, it's like her brother. Now how would you teach a computer to see something as "looks like Jay"?
Watching Georgia develop exponentially is a wonder. Her vocab must be at least several hundred words. She can count and she knows most of her ABC. I don't say this as a father showing off (well actually I do!), but a fascination with how they learn.
I found out later that Annie had told Georgia that the photo "looks like Jay", but the concept of something looking like something else but not being the same is now ingrained in the memory bank.
