This morning I was cleaning off the kitchen counter and putting away dishes when Seth brought a paper over to me. He had been sitting at the table with a stack of paper and the box of markers - something he spends a lot of time doing...he loves it! Anyway, he carried a sheet of paper over to me and showed it to me with a big huge grin on his face.
Do you see it? It says SETH - well, basically. All the letters are there. This is the first time he's written his name all by himself!
I think he liked my reaction, because he immediately sat down and started writing again. Here's the second result.
A little closer! At least they're all in a line instead of sporadically written on the paper.
Speaking of Seth, he's been a little obsessed with letters lately. (which is definitely a good thing) He'll ask us what letter a certain word starts with - remembers like nobody's business and repeats it back to us later (I know he's memorizing because he doesn't get the whole sound/letter relationship quite yet.)
We had a fun little conversation a few days ago while I was folding a basket of laundry.
It went something like this:
seth: what starts "blanket"?
seth: what starts "sock"?
seth: what starts "shirt"?
seth: s? sock and shirt both start with s? I start with "s" too. What starts "underwear"?
seth: YOU start underwear??? [followed by giggles]
me: no, the letter "u"
seth: the letter "me"?!?
And while we're on the topic of Seth, I'll share some of his artwork too! He always tells me what his drawings are...sometimes I can tell, sometimes I can't. His titles are below each picture.
look closely - you can totally see the dinosaur, right?
