Small insight into Addison's mind

Ever since Addison started reading at 18 months, I have been wondering how her mind works.  I can always see her wheels a turning, but have never been able to figure out how she thinks.  Well, I got a very small insight this week and I found it fascinating.

We were doing our math flashcards and we came upon 3+6.  I was watching her, waiting for her to be counting in her head and this is what comes out.  If you take 1 away from 6 and add it to the 3, you have 5+4.  4+4 is 8+1=9.

I can't imagine a more difficult way to get the right answer, but she got there!  I know I will never understand how her mind truly works, but I was happy to get a glimpse into her world.
