For her birthday, Annie was given a totally awesome ball pit full of tons of different colored balls. My only regret about the ball pit is that it isn’t big enough for me to lay down in. Someday I will have my own Heather-sized ball pit.
Earlier this week, my Mom was watching Annie play in the pit when she asked her what color one of the characters from “Yo Gabba Gabba” was. Annie thought a second, then picked up a ball that matched the color of the character! We, of course, proceeded to ask her what color the other characters from the show were, and she knew which color ball to pick up for all the “Yo Gabba Gabba” characters as well as a bunch of every day stuff too. Now if we could only teach her the proper names of the colors, she’d be set.
WOW, she is soo smart! I love her so much.
And I. Died. at the “Cookie!?” Died! She really should have her own show. Eeeevryone would tune in.
She is too funny. And so adorable.

How cute is she!! I loved that!
I was a teenage babysitter back with the movie “The Outsiders” came out, and I had a huge poster of the “Greasers” in my bedroom. One day I was babysitting a two year old at my house, and in about an hour I taught her all the names of the Greasers. I would ask, “Which one is… Ponyboy?” and she’d point to C. Thomas Howell. “Which one is Two-Bit?” and she’d point to Emilio Estevez. It was so cute. She even said their names as best as she could, when I would point to them. “DodaPOP!” for Sodapop “Nonnie” for Johnnie and “Deeve” for Steve. I don’t know why, but Annie’s ball pit video took me back to that day
She is one smart little green cookie!!!
OMG, I can barely take the cuteness. I so want to squeeze her!
Prepare for her world to be rocked when she learns there are red grapes and green apples
How awesome! When V was… 26mos? we took her to a Beaches in Jamaica, and that’s where the colours first ‘clicked’ for her, we were calling the water slides ‘elmo’ ‘big bird’ and ‘cookie’ and she got it just like Annie and the YGG. It was no time for her to replace the correct names. Go Annie!
Girl knows how to work the crowd!
Oh good job with Gabba Gabba colors! We got our 2 year old to learn her colors with Otter Pops (actually the generic kind). Every night after dinner we’d go to the freezer and I would say, “I’m having ___ and daddy’s having ___, what color does Sydney want?” And she totally blew away her preschool teacher by knowing all of her colors!
They are so much smarter than we think.
Next time when she gets the color right, answer with “you are right, muno is red”. This will associate the color with the name.
We used the ball pit for all sorts of fun learning activities. (sorting, more than, less than, counting).
so smart & so dang cute!!! my son LOVES yo gabba gabba too i don’t know if you have the room indoors, but one year someone bought us a “jump o lene” a ball pit big enough for mommy, daddy & child! thankfully we do have the room indoors and it is SO much fun. you can find it on amazon.
The book Brown Bear, Brown Bear will teach her the names of colors in no time!
Oh how I love her! She’s adorable and brings a huge smile to my face! Thank you guys for sharing your girls with the masses.
Haha..I love this…the look on her face as she searches for the balls. Supah cute!
Annie videos are always the best way to start a Friday morning!
I agree with Jen!
She always puts a smile on my face!
Thanks for sharing her with all of us!
I love the look on he face and how fast she would bring one up! She is just so cute!

Haha, the son of a family friend used to do something very similar. Can’t remember the reason why, but one day the friend took both her children to be assessed by a child psychologist. Her little girl (who is the older child by 2 years) answered beautifully when asked about her colours…”red…blue…green….purple…” etc.
When it was her brother’s turn (he would have been about Annie’s age) things went a little differently.
“What colour’s that one J?”
(“Jason’s the red power ranger,” his mum helpfully explained to the psychiatrist…)
*psychiatrist tries again*
“What colour’s that one J?”
(Billy’s the blue power ranger.)
And so it went on!!! Hilarious stuff. I just love this age group.
She is too cute and oh so smart for her age! I love when she was a little stumped for a second she just decided to improv and kill us with the cuteness instead. She is quite the performer for being just two!
My favorite video yet of that sweet little munchkin! My son learned his colors from Skittles thanks to his sisters so would say ‘lemon’ instead of yellow, “lime” for green, etc. I’m sure his kindergarten teacher was impressed with my little junk food eating boy!!
After reading your green chile casserole recipe which sounds great, made me think of one I make for quick appetizer called Green Chiles Pinwheels. Just mix cream cheese, cheddar cheese, chili powder, garlic powder, green chiles and spread on crescent roll rectangles, roll up and cut into pinwheels — they are great!!
Ears! Sooooo cute!!!
Please keep the videos coming. My son LOVES “Annie videos”. We go to your YouTube channel and hit Play All, and suddenly we can clean the house, talk to each other, relax – he is entertained. Right now, he is supposed to be napping, and I just heard him cracking up in his bed. When I peeked in, I heard him saying, “What color is Foofa? GOOD!” and cracking up. Thanks for the entertainment!
She’s so smart!! Love her!
Very cute! And I’m so dumb, when you asked what color a grape was and she held up a green ball I thought “Nope, she got one wrong” Hello…. green grapes! My kids only want purple grapes so I guess I’ve blocked the green ones out of my mind!
