My cutest 2 year old grandson, who is all boy, takes a minute's break to relax and read! He has been zooming around the house and outside NONSTOP, had a bath, and gone shopping with me. I showed him his new books and he settled himself down, (he wanted his very own chair), and began pointing and quietly naming pictures. This is the beginning of language, of reading, for real. It's called phonological awareness. THIS, OF COURSE, MAKES ME SMILE FROM EAR TO EAR!
Speaking of ears, he has has 15+ ear infections, tubes, ruptured eardrums and a couple of surgeries since he was born. The last surgery has really helped him, he hears better and now is speaking in sentences. YEAH! Isn't he just a stinking dolly! I think so!
