Ava's name

Lately Ava and I have had "school time". I take about 30-45 minutes in the morning to sit with her and work with sounding out letters and writing them. She will ask to have school time every once in a while, too, so she seems to really enjoy it. She's just soaking it up. It's been fun seeing her learn and how quickly she's picking it up. This past week I've been working with her on writing her name. She finally did it all by herself. I was estatic! And I know, her name only has three letters and two of those letters are the same, but she still did it and I was so excited for her. Makes a momma proud! Now we're working on Lily's name. (So I pick easy names for my kids. Didn't have that in mind when we named them, but it's kind of nice when they start learning to write their name!)

*Update on Lily: She is growing a little better now. We started her on cereal, but she doesn't seem to be too interested. So, we'll keep trying and sooner or later she'll be eating like a champ.

Good job, Ava! I never even thought about doing "school time." You're so creative. :) Ava is lucky to have such a sweet mommy.

Jan is an easy name to learn to write. Just saying.
