What do you call a 2 1/2 year old?

Toddler doesn't fit. She's much more than a toddler. A toddler is what you call a 1 year old just learning to walk and say individual words. This 2 1/2 year old speaks in complex sentences, remembers details from weeks before, and can climb ladders like a little spider monkey. She knows her colors, counts 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 8 (we're working on it), and can identify some of her letters. She recognizes emotions and can explain how she feels- that's vastly different than a toddler who cries as her primary method of communication.




But I can't bring myself to call her a kid. I can't have a kid. I have a baby and a... what?
