In the last few days, James has become very interested in writing and spelling his name. If you ask him how to spell his name, he'll proudly say "J-A-M-E-S".
Yesterday, he was playing with letter magnets on the fridge and he said, "Look I spelled James!" I looked over and he had put A-M-E-S together. He was just missing the J! After I helped him find the J he spelled his name on the fridge all day long.
Today, he decided he wanted to draw. He drew for a while and then brought the picture over to show me. He drew Lightning McQueen (so cute! I'm so glad his faces are starting to smile instead of frown!) and sure enough, he wrote JAMES:
Sorry for the poor quality picture. The crayon color was too light to be picked up by our scanner. The 'J' is backwards, but it's totally legible! He wrote it with no coaching or prompts from me. I'm so proud of my boy!
