I have an 18 month old boy named Aiden. He has always done unusual things for a child. He has been very agile with his pointing finger. He quickly tries to find the operation system of toys. He speaks at least 75-100 words. up to 6 word sentences. LOVES, I say is obsessed with his alphabet. He holds a letter one in each hand most of the day. He recognizes the entire alphabet and has for over 2 months and can pronounce all but a few letters "W, G, H, J, V and X" he adds approximately 4 new words a day now. all you need to say is "Can you say" and he repeats and remembers.
He uses both his left and right hand equally as well.
He is not a crier, he will go days without crying. the only time he does cry is when he gets hurt or falls. Then he holds his breath and really over does it until you comfort him. When he is told to go take a nap he goes in the room and rocks himself to sleep with his pointing finger on each hand in a tab. He screams when he doesn't get his way.
He is very gentle and loves to be rocked. He is gentle with his pets (3 dogs) Loves giving kisses and is constantly laughing. Expecially when he is talking on the phone. Has always loved music and has kept rythem to music since he could hold himself up. He walked at 9 months and ran at 11 months. He can use a remote control for the TV and a controller on a video game.
What is your opinion of his abilities? Do you feel he is gifted. He spends his days with his grandmother and she gives him total attention. Could all of this just be due to his constant attention from grandma?
I would appreciate any advice and imput, I am being told he is so advanced.............?
