Ok, well, maybe not his first, but the first one he ever wrote by himself! I’m so proud of him. Last night, we sat at the dinning room table together and talked about what he wanted for Christmas. Instead of spelling out the words for him, I made him sound it out and write it on his own. He has come so far….. just a few short months ago, he didn’t even know how to write his name, let alone write sentences! In some of the images, you can tell he was getting frustrated (hand on forehead picture), but he worked through it and finished.
I wanted to get a really good picture of his letter, but by the time he finished it, he wanted to immediately put it in an envelope and mail it to Santa. As a result, the only image I have of the entire letter is him being silly holding it over his mouth!
And for those of you who dont know how to read “Gavin” language, here is a translation:
I ben a good boe. (I have been a good boy)
Ples bring me a (Please bring me a)
Rscr (Race Car)
Str Urs (Star Wars)
Legos (Legos, at least he spelled that one right)!
I hope all of you are experiencing the joys of Christmas! 🙂
