Counting

Mackenzie likes to count to 10. This is how she counts:

one...
two...
tree...
pour...
pive...
wix...
weven...
nine...
ten.

Sometimes she adds "yay Makiki". Makiki or Kiki is how she says her name. Did you notice that she skipped the number 8? She skips it everytime! She rarely even repeats it when we try to jump in after seven and correct her. For whatever reason she doesn't like that number.

Whenever she counts it reminds me of my Papa and how he would "count your birthdays" on your birthday. Whenever he "counted", you were always 1 year younger than you really were. Of course now, at 30, I would love that, but as a child you are always looking for the next year.

Maybe someday soon, Mackenzie will add the number eight back into the sequence of counting to 10, but for now, know that "eight" is not allowed! ;)

  1. Kate always skips "6". She refuses to admit it's a number. Pretty funny though.
