My First Post Ever!

Well this is my first post and I have nothing interesting to write about..  Which is probably ok since nobody knows about this blog yet anyways.  (:   I guess I will tell you a little about my daughter, since you can read a little about me on my profile.  I'll refer to her as 'E' on here, she just turned 3 in August 2011.  I'm very proud of her, which I'm sure you will surmise from my future posts and pictures!  ( :  But I can't help it, she's my one and only, right now, and I think she's A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

Now in reality she really is something special.  She started talking when she was 8 months old, and I mean really saying clear words anyone could understand.  I have videos that I'll post sometime from when she was little.  She memorizes things rediculously fast, such as the Lord's Prayer, which she learned in less than an hour and could recite alone at about 18 months!  She also has an ear for music already, and has been singing Amazing Grace (all the verses) for well over a year, and her timing is spot on, as well as her tone and pitch.  She sings every Sunday at church and LOVES it!  In another year or so we're going to get her piano lessons.

Since she memorizes things so fast, and actually enjoys it, I've been trying to teach her as much as I can while she is still little.  At first I thought it would be great to give her a head start to Kindergarten, but I quickly realized that she is going to surpass that before she is even old enough to start!  So far she knows her ABC's (upper and lower case) by sight, the majority of the letter sounds, her numbers 1-10 by sight, and counting 1-1, she knows 45+ sight words (thanks in large part to the PreSchool Prep Comany!), she also know her shapes, and colors of course, and she is learning so much else that doesn't even have a real pre-K category.

We've done mini science lessons based off of the PBS show Sid the Science Kid.  I preview the experiement they do the night before and then after she watches it in the morning we do it and any other activities I can think of that go along with that lesson.  She has explored the wind, rain, sun, plants/leaves, her teeth, etc.  And she remembers everything she has learned!  Weeks later she will be telling someone about her "K9 teeth and how they are for biting hard things like carrots"!  Hahaha  I love that kid.

Anyway aside from the acedemic stuff she is a sweet, loving, strong willed, short tempered, energetic, spunky child and we have fun every single day!  I hope someone out there enjoys this blog and if not, I do!  So it's all ok!  ❤
