Say hello to Ruth!


I had to miss this year's Davidson Fellows awards in DC because I was otherwise occupied here in Philadelphia, giving birth. Please say hello to little Ruth, who arrived on October 5 at 3pm, weighing 7lbs 12 oz. She joins big brothers Jasper and Sam, and will no doubt provide lots of fodder for future Gifted Exchange posts.

Congratulations- what a beautiful little one, and a great name (though I am partial, since one of our dd's shares the same name). :-)

Hi, Laura: I want to highlight how alert Ruth is, the first indicator, perhaps, of the gifted child. A gifted doctor is able to tell the gifted parent that the child is "very smart" even within days of birth and compared to the other children born in hospitals. Congratulations to you and your entire family. Since you are a family containing gifted persons, we wanted to ask you, What is the difference between being gifted and being a highly sensitive person? Are they one and the same? Do you know? Can you ask your readers? Thank you so much for everything you do to research these topics.

Glad to see another child named Jasper in the mix...just like mine.
