This video is four years old, and the 16-month-old kid in the video is now more than 5 years old. Wonder how his reading and comprehension continued to evolve!

This is a new game we play with Torin. He is 16 1/2 months old now (3-13-2010) and he learned all the words in the Your Baby Can Read program a few months ago. I have made him new cards to continue his language development and everyday he learns 1-5 new words.
I'm amazed at how much interest this video is getting after 4 1/2 years. If you'd like to see more videos of Torin or his brothers and the cool things they can do, check out my channel page.

It’s also an anti-theft, waterproof marvel that keeps my phone’s power bar from ever getting into the red.Sure the idea seems obvious now – tuck a gigantic solar powered battery pack into an exposed slot and turn the wearer into a walking energy harvester. Simple maybe, but I didn’t […]
All moms are different. But all moms like getting flowers on Mother’s Day, and that’s a fact (not, however a fact we can document in any fashion.) Instead of getting chewed out for forgetting to call her on the second Sunday of May, you can take care of it ahead of time with Teleflora’s flower […]
Yeah, Bluetooth audio is pretty common these days, so why should you care about these earbuds? Look how happy that woman up above looks. She’s got FRESHeBUDS in. Boom. There’s your reason. She’s also at the beach and it appears to be a very nice day.But for the sake of promotion, wireless earbuds are fast becoming the […]
“Gets stuff done,” is a good way to be described by anybody. Especially by coworkers or bosses. Because whether you’re in finance or a children’s librarian, stuff needs to get done. But how do you make sure stuff gets done? You definitely can’t do all the stuff yourself, unless your company/organization/government office consists entirely of you. And […]
