My daughter is the same way. She was counting to 20 by 19 months and knew her entire alphabet at 21 months. She's now 2 and can write half of her letters so far...Anyways, when I realized she was a really fast learner, I started to teach her spanish. When she was counting, I would tell her how to say it in spanish....when she would learn a new word I would say it in spanish then repeat it in english so she knew there was more than one way to say it. Now when she's curious how to say any word in spanish, she asks me!

My son is also very bright. I bought him a lot of learning puzzles and his favorites have numbers up to 10 and the other has the alphabet. Leap Frog and V Tech have a lot of wonderful educational games and toys. I suggest the Leap Frog refrigerator phonics game that will teach her the sounds the letters make. My son's other favorite toy is the V Tech Alphabet Town. You can also get foam letters and numbers for the bathtub and books that teach the concepts she is interested in. We introduced my son to the computer at around 18 months. There are a lot of educational computer games out there. Jump Start makes a lot and my son loves to play them. Shape sorting games and toys is another thing he always liked. Candy Land Castle Game is a good first game for children (it's a little different from the traditional board game). There are also a lot memory and matching games that your daughter may enjoy. Have fun with her! They grow up fast.
