3. Scarlet Snow shows us she knows how to count!
Scarlet Snow never fails to amaze us. In another video posted on her Instagram account, the little girl who is just 17 months old showed us that she already knows how to count. Her dad Hayden asked her to count the peaches they picked from a farm, and she was able to count until 10. If it seemed like she was in a hurry, it's maybe because she wanted to eat the fruits already. "Let's hurry up to 10 already Daddy @dochayden. I'm so hungry!!!" the caption read. Let's see, she knows the names of fruits and veggies and knows how to count before two years old! Good job, Scarlet!
