16, 384

Griff and I have been reading "one grain of rice", a story that aunt kate gave him about a peasant indian girl who outsmarts a raja by asking for one grain of rice, then two the second day, doubling each day for a month.

Griff has been asking repeat doubling questions:

"What does one and one make dad?"
"What does two and two make?"
Etc. Etc.

Tonight we got to 16,384.  It took me a second to do the adding, and Griffin said the full number "eight thousand one hundred and ninety-two" twice with no prompting.  I'm raising a nerd.  A curious adorable nerd.  And I love it.
