When did your toddler start recognizing all the letters, the numbers, and the shapes?

I mean when did he/she start? even if it wasn't so clear. I wanna know what is the norm for girls to say these things. My baby is now almost 17 months old and she knows the letters and the numbers and half of the shapes. Do you think she is gifted in learning? I personally think she is a fast learner and I am putting a lot of effort on her. But do gifted toddlers usually turn out to be good language learners?

That's amazing! What a star. :) My son also knows all his letters and some of his numbers, and is even starting to sound out letters to form the word. I do believe we have smart kids on our hands! Best of luck, here's hoping we can nurture them without being pushy parents! :D xoxo
