Some reading

***I added a "reading posts" link in the sidebar for those of you who haven't been with us long or for those of you who have, and want to see how cute Eleanor was in that first reading video when she was just 14 months old. :)

The lack of videos lately has been due to the fact that Eleanor stops whatever cute thing she's doing that I'm trying to capture, and immediately runs toward me yelling, 'Up, pease!' whenever she sees the video camera. That doesn't make for a very interesting video.

Anyway, yesterday I finally captured a couple of things worth posting. The first is some reading. (The other will come at some point this week...)

Right before I took the video, I jotted down some words that I wondered if she would be able to read. So, in the video, she's seeing that piece of paper for the very first time. I did edit the video, which was originally about six minutes long because well, she's an almost two-year-old, and she went off on a few tangents about having ten toes and that time (about two months ago!) when she got stung by a bee. That little two-year-old attention span is something, isn't it?!

Wow, she is just amazing. I am sitting here at my desk with my jaw open. How does she do it?? The rate she's going she'll be teaching elementary school at age 6.

You're doing an amazing job with her Megan.
