This makes me feel old



This is Finn's first time reading these pages in Hop on Pop. The video was taken a couple weeks ago and he's already doing so much better! I promise we're not pushing this on a three-year-old, he's just so interested in letters and reading and soaks it all up faster than I can teach him. The other day he read the word Elmo and said, "Mom! His name's not El-mo it's O-mo!" After I explained that he read it right and his name really is Elmo, his reality was shaken...but he's coping with it well.

Amazing! Finn is a wiz kid :) such a sweet boy - wish we lived closer so our boys could play... Someday?!

I love his laugh of contentment at the end! I need to get that book!!!! Porter is the same, he's sooo curious how to read and is learning how to write all kinds of words. I know exactly where you are coming from saying you aren't pushing it at all! What a smart little man! And cute too!

christopher has taken off w/reading. he loves it. and I love hearing him read. the library has marked the beginning reading books w/a red piece of tape & we get some of those for him to practice with.
