There Wasn't A Number 6
I've thought for a while that Noah had a photographic memory, and now I am even more sure of it.
His teacher sent home some number flash cards, numbered 1 through 30. Steph just showed them to him in random order, one right after the other, and he announced the number she was holding up. Immediately upon finishing, he said, "There wasn't a number 6". Sure enough, Steph had held the 6 card upside down, so it looked like a 9. The other option is he recognized that he had said the number 9 twice, and that one of them had to be the number 6 flipped upside down. But that still is pretty amazing to me for a 6-year-old.
I'm sure he is just a totally normal, average kid; and I'm just being a typical parent who thinks their kid is a genius -- but this incident seems particularly Rain Man-esque. I guess one option is that he is an autistic savant, but no doctors have ever expressed concern for this, and he seems to handle social situations pretty well, so I don't really think that's it.
I'm still a little dumbfounded by this...
[EDIT] I asked Noah how he knew there wasn't a 6, and he said that he knew he said 9 twice, and that one of them had to be the 6. So there you go... not a savant or a genius (yet), just using good logic. :-)
