She sounds like she's doing great! My dd wasn't even speaking when she turned 2 lol.

Oh and just familiarizing her with things now is helpful. Read to her a lot, sing the ABC's and show her often what the letters look like and what sounds they make, count objects... stuff like that. Even if she can't so some of it herself, hearing your repit_tion will reinforce it in her mind!

really don't be too worried. being anxious about what she can and can't do will rub off on your child and will have a negative impact on her feelings towards school. The smarter children in my cla__s are the ones whose parents take an interest in them, read bedtime stories, play games with them, do crafty things with them, praise and encourage them - not the ones whose parents hot house them. Keeping learning fun is the key - your child should be enjoying herself and not realise she is learning - stuff like singing 1-2-3-4-5 once I caught a fish alive and so on.

mummy2paris my daughter just turned 2 monday and she sings the alphabet and counts to 10 w/ a little help and knows animals and can pick colors when asked to see; communicates in sentences and is almost completely potty trained (had a relapse she got really sick) when i'm cooking she stands beside me and mixes things with me and she washes her own hands and knows how to take a shower by herself (i sit next to the shower) we plan on putting her in baby pre-k in august when her sister starts pre-k she play educational games on the tv with her sisters all we do with our kids is sing the alphabet song on car trips and play i spy and read to them at bed time we involve them in lot of things so that they can learn

oh yeah and my step daughter's iq was tested by her school and they told us she has the iq of a 14 y/o she can do allegbra at 7 y/o and she's in advanced computer cla__ses so just being an attentive parent and doing small things like reading and makeing it funny can really promote learning
