If you haven’t noticed, we’ve experienced a couple of major life events over the past few months. Plus, around the same time, the Tumblr app decided to just call it quits for about 4 months which made posting photos extremely cumbersome and posting video impossible. So the Tumblr has taken a bit of a nose dive in quality since somewhere around April, when our house went on the market. So please bear with me as I post some of my favorite video clips from the past few months as I attempt to catch up. I’ll try not to bog us down with too much video here but I want to share some moments I don’t want to forget or chance getting lost in the depths of the cloud.
This particular clip is from mid-April (April 16 I think but not 100% on the exact date.) Around this time, Baylor had a huge interest in letters and especially in sounding out words. That still exists, but his focus turned very shortly afterwards to numbers- learning to count to 100 and he has been much more interested in adding/subtracting than reading. We’re just now (in real time- September 2017) starting to notice what may be a shift back to letters/reading, as he is starting to ask how to spell certain words and is showing an interest in sounding things out again. He actually was ever so slightly more advanced in his reading skills in this video than he is currently. But his number skills have increased exponentially. Also of note, he memorized my entire 10 digit telephone number a couple of weeks ago after only working with him for less than 10 minutes on it. This kid’s affinity for numbers and letters in addition to his memory is truly remarkable. I think I speak objectively when I say that his talent in this area is truly above and beyond what you totally see from a 2 year old.
