If I hadn't seen it myself...


I'd have a hard time believing it! Yesterday while we were getting dinner ready, Little Bitty was playing with the letter magnets on the fridge. I looked down and saw "M A S" and didn't think much of it. A minute or so later, I looked down and he was putting the T on to finish up his word:



As in "Thomas the Tank Engine." He not only spelled it all by himself (from memory!), he spelled it right :). He's 3 yrs old, we've worked a little on showing him how to do "cat" and "dog" and even "train" with the letters (which he's never shown any interest in doing on his own), but not "Thomas."

What's ironic about this is, he doesn't even SAY his own name (I've heard him say it once or twice - ever) but now he can not only say, but SPELL Thomas' name. And he's so cute, he checked his work. After this he went to find a Thomas toy, and brought it back to compare and make sure he'd gotten it right :).

Very nice! Daniel used to do that all the time. I loved reading his new surprises that he left all over the house. It's thrilling, isn't it?

How amazing and adorable! Isn't it amazing the joy we find when our children accomplish the most "simple" things. I think any mile stone is a blessing, especially with special children:)

There's so much going on in that complex brain! I'm excited to see what he'll be doing next!

A noticed while reading this that he spelled it backwards, starting with the end first! What an amazing way to spell :)
