That's pretty amazing! Clearly that baby has no clue what most of those words are, but anticipates some of the phrases anyway, by rote memory I
guess. Some of the consonant blends, like Br in the word Brave at the end... kids that age often haven't mastered that but she has.
You can tell she is watching and modeling the woman all through it. I see she has glasses. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say:
1. Her vision problem before she got glasses caused her to rely more on her ears, so she is very 'attuned' to sound, and...
2. Ever since she got glasses, she has 'woken up' to seeing all the things she could not before, and is more aware (in a visual sense) because of
the huge difference between 'glasses on/glasses off.' So studying her mother's mouth shape to mimic the sounds-- she is on to something and she
I clearly remember the day, when I was 8-years-old, walking out of the optometrist with my very first pair of glasses. OMG... it was a whole new
world. I can still "see" in my memory... the clearly defined bricks on the building, the individual leaves on the tree, the individual strands of
hair on my sister's head! If I had always seen the world that way, I would not have marveled that day. That's my take on what this baby may be
experiencing that makes her unusually adept at what she's able to do.
