Jacob "Reading" a Book



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.  : )

Wow! That was incredible! Preschool is really going to help him - Thank goodness for great (patient) preschool teachers!

Hey the other day Davin wanted to know how old he had to be to babysit. I asked him why, and he said he can't wait until he can babysit Jacob and Matthew - to play with them and make them laugh. Ü

Mrs Dede does wonderful things with her pre K kids. Christopher has learned so much in her class.

That is amazing! He totally knows what's coming next without even looking at the next page. What a smart little guy, and I LOVE that he says "take a picture of me" at the end! So cute!

We love Miss Dede!!!

Christopher knows the whole story too. It's so much fun! How great that you recorded it. It's sad that they are not in the same class.

Way to go Jacob!!!!
