Holy moly, Ben Seewald and Jessa Duggar are raising a baby genius! Their little boy Spurgeon is still less than two years old, but he already knows his ABCs! Jessa showed off her baby boy’s amazing talent on Instagram on Oct. 23, and we’re honestly blown away by how smart he is! Watch the video below to see Spurgeon name all of the letters Ben points to!
Fans were immediately stunned by how intelligent the toddler is. “He’s so smart!” wrote one excited fan on the Instagram video. “I’m a preschool teacher and I’m impressed!!!” commented another. “We don’t give children enough credit. They’re smarter than we think!!” You can say that again.
Spurgeon is just two weeks away from his second birthday. According to Kids Health, most kids only know about 50 words by the time they turn two. PBS says that “two-year-olds can sing the A-B-C song, but they don’t yet understand that the letter names correspond to specific graphic designs.” Considering the fact that Spurgeon could name almost all of the letters that Ben pointed to, we would say he’s super advanced for his young age!
The excitement over the video is a far cry from the concern fans were expressing just two months ago in August. When Jessa posted a cute video of Spurgeon playing with the controls in her car, fans noticed that he wasn’t talking to her, and started commenting that he might have some kind of delayed development. They blamed the parents, saying that it looks like Jessa “babies him,” because he was still using a bottle. We love how Jessa and Ben just proved them wrong by having the smartest kid ever!
