Piper has impressed several people with her knowledge of colors, but the truth is, when asked what color something is, she always says “purple” . It just so happens that that has been the first color a few people have asked her. It does seem impressive that a 17 month-old can not only recognize but also verbalize the color that they see. Yeah, that would be impressive. But with Piper, it’s just luck that you asked the right color.
