Cheyenne, you are a wonderful model for us all with your indomitable determination to explore and make sense of the world ! I have lately been observing children with a greater respect for the fact that, unlike us “clever” adults, who like to think we have got everything sussed ( ho ho ! ), children come into the world with no prior experience of its spatio-temporal qualities, its curious humans and their communication strategies or for that matter, the distinction between edible and inedible, yummy and not so yummy. Every single bit of data has to be researched, explored, filed, rechecked against current working theories and then catalogued until some new experience suggests that we may need to reassess our understanding. It is a miracle and a godsend that children come so devoutly hardwired to undertake this mammoth undertaking.
My sense is that it is far too easy for us to see a child like Cheyenne and just see “cuteness”, and it’s absolutely undeniable that she is being adorably cute.
