One Proud Mama!

This may be the shortest post in the history of posts...but this is very important info that I want to keep.

2 awesome things:

1. Gavin is officially Paci FREE!!! Yes'um, no pacifier for around 4 days! And it wasn't even a difficult process, we just simply put them away. He mentioned it a couple of times at nap and bedtime, but we just said that he was a big boy and didn't need a paci...and to our surprise that was the end of it :) . It's a little sad to me though, because he just adored that paci and looked so darn cute sucking it. But it was time.

2. My 2 year old knows the letter sounds to all of the alphabet. Yes, you heard me correctly. Not trying to brag, but as a teacher for 3 years, I know what a difficult thing letter sounds can be to grasp. I also know that learning letter sounds is very crucial in Kindergarten (5-6 year olds) because that's when children learn to read and make words. Preschool children (3-4) are taught letter sounds, but are not required to know them, just identify letters. So, tonight when Gav, Nels, and I were singing a letter sound song and he was able to tell us CORRECTLY all the sounds-by HIMSELF, I must say I was an OVERLY PROUD, IMPRESSED mother! He's 2 years old. Wow.

And that's all. We had a WONDERFUL Mother's Day Weekend...I'll try to post more on that soon. Happy Mommy's Day ALL!
