It's such a fun journey watching your own children develop talents. I have been impressed with a few talents and gifts that Hyrum came with. He has an amazing sense of direction and memory. At fourteen months old, we were driving down a main highway in LA-and he pointed down the road in passing and said "Choch, choch" - for church. He remembered which street our church was on, out of dozens that we passed...and we had only been about three times. He is an artist in many ways - his cartoon characters are eye candy to me, he has a knack for making food and seasoning it, and can figure out how things work and fix them readily (engineer). He's a natural dancer (I LOVE to watch him move to music-it's a talent I've always wished I had). And just the other day, he wanted to take pictures by himself. I think he may be better than I am at it. Here are the ones he took.
All I can say is, if he keeps revealing hidden talents at this rate, I'm going to have a VERY hard time figuring out what to help him pursue. Meanwhile, I'll continue to allow him to explore.
