Who knows, maybe he is, maybe he isn't. Eventually get him IQ tested just to be sure hes placed correctly in school and if he is advanced, you will really need to be an advocate for him so he isn't bored, but not pressured to grow up too fast, also you will have to pay attention to his friends and be around kids who are like him or at least are well-grounded.

i think alot of the time it is down to the way you talk to them, i talk to my 2 1/2 year old all the time as if i would a adult and she talk's back to me the same.
when my nephew was a tot i had him counting to 10 in english, german and french he was a very bright boy and i had a lot's of attention to show him.
a friend of mine's son could'nt speak at all and she admit's it is because she never spoke to him she just didn't realise she had to. i think the best way for children to learn is to make it fun and dont over push him :) xx

he could just be a fast learner. and he very may well be a genius!! that is a wonderful thing! embrace it and encourage it! but don't let him grow up too fast.. Congrats!
