I just realized something...
Quinn read his mom's name to me last night off the chalk board. He clearly gets it that letters make sounds, and groups of letters make sounds that are words. Thinking back on how he said it, he actually sounded it out. P, A, and M are all letters they've done in phonics so far.

He also did well with "Pete" (they've done T, too)...

When did this happen?

Isn't that cool? Yay, Quinn!

It's a short jump from understanding that to reading chapter books. I mean, disturbingly short.

And people wonder why I like small children better than I like babies!!

Awww, too sweet. It is trippy when they start reading things to you. Little neurons start firing up in their brains. Nice to watch!

PS,
so sorry, I'm just not a "chat on the phone person" -- will be very hard to catch me next to a phone for a conversation. Email works sooo much better for me!

I used to be a really good e-mail person, pre-LiveJournal, pre-child, pre...everything.

Now I find myself trying to grab phone calls in precious minutes running from A to B...

That said, I'll try to do better on e-mails...

Poke me with one from time-to-time if I lapse, k?

Miss you!
