The new pediatrician was stunned at how well Klara speaks and especially at her skill of identifying emotional states. For instance, after she got her shots, Klara informed us that she was “no happy doctor’s. Happy outside.” 

I don’t think it’s important how early kids begin to talk. Everybody talks eventually, so what’s the big deal? But I’m glad she is already learning to name emotions because people who don’t learn in childhood make for unhappy adults.
