Pronouns

My three-year old is going through a cute figuring-out-pronouns phase. He's occasionally mixing up his subjective and objective pronouns. So we get fun stuff like, "Let I do it!" and "Tell she to come here."

He's not, however, getting the genders confused, as I've observed in other children around this age. "I asked Grandma to show me his garden."

In the case of the latter, though, I wonder if it's 100% an issue of learning the rules of language & syntax, or if it's also compounded by the fact that many kids that age still don't have a firm grasp on gender differences. Hmmmm...
