talk about it more

a virtual baby book

When she was two, Fiona regularly said "Talk about it more!" to express her desire to know more about whatever we were discussing.

Spatial awareness

Fiona often shows signs of having very good spatial awareness. One time we were rearranging some furniture and I was explaining to Jen where I thought the TV armoire would go, and Fiona went over to the spot and stood with her arms out (being the furniture) and angled a certain way and said "like this?" I explained that I was really thinking of having it face more toward the chair and loveseat, and she adjusted her angle and raised her eyebrows at me - and she had it exactly.

This evening, she came to me in the kitchen, pointed up at the ceiling, and asked "Dad, is the head of your bed right up there?" She had it exactly again. It's often cited as the province of boys, but Fiona has it too.

Higher spatial awareness in boys is often due to exposure to games, etc. that help them learn it. It can be taught. Thus, people are not good with directions or bad with directions. It can be learned. Go, girls and spatial awareness!
