Yet Another Breakthrough

Tonight at the dinner table, Aidan had finished but had come back to visit with Ethan, who is a bit slower.

I told him, "you can play with Ethan later. He's eating. Ethan's eating," then turned to Ethan. "What does 'eat' start with?"

He knew the answer to that one - E. But then he took it further.

"E. Eeeeat. Eat. E....T. E, T is eat!"

And you know what? So what if it was wrong. He's on the right track. He's sounding out words and telling me how he thinks they are spelled, something he hasn't even attempted until tonight.

I am SO proud of him!
