The spelling lesson...




With Wesley life keeps us hopping and in stitches he's so funny. Wesley favorite thing in the world is to be read to, he loves to color, and sit right alongside his brothers when they are doing their school work. At 3 he's like a little sponge taking in letters, sounds, and numbers. So today when he got up from his nap he grabbed his new coloring book and William's pencil. He climbed up in the chair next to me and this is how our conversation went.....



Wesley: How you spell it?

Me: How do you spell what?

Wesley: How do you spell it, Mama?

Me: Do you want to spell a word?

Wesley: Yes, I spell Web-E (as he calls himself).

I chuckle under my breath, looked at Rebekah and said "well it would help if he could write the words"!

Me: OK, W....

Wesley: W, Y
As he is saying Y he is signing the letter Y to me, he gets this from Jonathan signing. So he may not be able to write Y but he can sign it! Before I can say anything else he looks at me and says....

Wesley: tttt (making the letter t sound) T...right Mama? ttt...yeah. See I did it, I write Web-E!


He was very proud of himself.
It's so much fun to see what children say and come up with, keeps my days full of laughter and joy. I love to watch my children grow and learn, what a privilege it is! What funny things do you kids say?

How fun to sit in your kitchen with you and watch this precious conversation take place, via bloggy land :-)

Granton has learned the word "down" and now he points down when he says "down". So now he tells the dog "down" (get off the couch). From his high chair Granton use to tell me and sign "all done" but now he points his little finger toward the ground and says "down" (get me down). We're laughing for now :-)
