Into the meal...

Sometimes (as a kid) you just gotta have a little fun and sometimes (as a parent) you just gotta relax. “Do you want a spoon?” “No.” “Uhm, okay…” After a bit he stopped to explain that he was “squishing rice.” Raz was standing by in red alert mode, knowing he’d be called in to help clean afterwards.

Zane is getting pretty good at reading letters. He used to pause a beat or so and point at each letter as he read it. Last night we read a couple of new books from the library and he spelled words quickly and without any fingers being pointed. Then we’ll try to pronounce a few words as well before reading the rest of the book. It surprises me that he doesn’t seem to have any problems with the crazy font styles that books use. Also, he’s either getting better at reading words or memorizing them. He “read” the word James on a Thomas train book at the store with Faith the other day.
