What was Ivy like as a baby/toddler? Did her intellect cause her to develop faster? I’m guessing she could talk sooner than most children once she’d figured out how to form sounds and process sensory information, but what about physical stuff like walking or eating? Was Kincaid stuck with a little kid who could hold complex conversations about any subject you care to name, but who also needed her diaper changing every few minutes? Did she throw tantrums due to a lack of food? Was she like Bonea, who knows so much information but has no concept of how it actually applies to the world (e.g. “pancakes are inanimate!”)? Like Ivy seeing a plane for the first time, points up at it and goes ooh and ahh, then turns to Kincaid and delivers a PhD level lecture on aerodynamics and airplane engineering? Baby Ivy fascinates me.
Pls note: I have 0 experience raising kids so I have no idea how children grow or what’s involved xD
