I can't forget Jared! He is doing much developmentally lately too!
Jared - Jared got a new big boy bike a while ago. So with the cooler weather here we're spending more time outside. He does so well riding his bike! He also loves to figure out words and read them. Just the other day he was reading words off of the cars/vans on the street (like a Fox 10 News van) and likes to read words off items at the dinner table, e.g. "milk," "butter," "cheese." He reads 4 or 5 of his Hooked on Phonics kindergarten books. He can put together words on his Leap Frog Phonics Pond toy...three-letter words (the toy only allows three-letter words) like "cat," "log," "cup," "mat." Plus, he knows what words rhyme or sound the same, e.g. cat and hat, log and dog, fox and box. He can pick them out and match them up. He knows how to write his letters. Lately he likes to ask us "why" on a lot of things. He knows the sign language signs to "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" and "He's Got the Whole World In His Hands" (and he can sing to the songs too!). He loves to talk and talk and talk with us...about his day, about what's he's thinking about, about stories he likes to make up, about his likes and dislikes.
