Jacob has been LOVING preschool. They are very big into repetitive lessons. They have been reading "Brown Bear, Brown Bear" for 2 weeks now. Yesterday as we were on our way to school, he pulled out his book and started reading to me. I was absolutely floored. Coupled with the fact that he has never been able to hear well, and he has the most incredible underbite that you have ever seen, (It makes his smile oh so cute, but the boy just has the Hardest time pronouncing certain sounds), the most he ever really talks is a few sentences at best. Even then you have the hardest time understanding him, therefore he gets frustrated, screams, and then you get frustrated with him. It's a unending cycle.
That is why when he read me this story, I felt such hope for him. He has had to read it to everybody in the family. Repeatedly. : )
(if you couldn't see the pictures, you would still probably not be able to tell what he was saying) ; )
