Some new skills!

I've been wanting to show you this video for a few weeks.  It was taken on October 28th.  Harlie can sign her ABC's with no help!  And she tries to verbalize a lot of them, too!

She practices a lot.  The other day, she did them with both hands at the same time!  I love that she finds it fun to sign.

And she can write her name!


I have a video of her doing that, too, but for some reason it won't upload.  I'll try it in another post and see if it works.  Those are window crayons (thanks, Grandma - they love them!).  Last week at school her teacher asked her to write her name on the back of her art project - and she did!  It wasn't very long ago (like two weeks, maybe) she could only write the H and the A.  And we don't need to spell it for her - she knows exactly what letters to write!  That girl amazes me every day.

There's a new post below this one (from last night) and hopefully I'll have another one today.  I have a lot to tell you to bring you up to speed!

Thanks!

I think my favorite part is the Z and then the flipping open of the laptop - like "Ok, Mom, happy? Can I get back to my stuff now?"

Super cute!!!

Awesome things, all around! I *loved* hearing X and her clear voice. Love it! Also, her name-writing is better than many kindergartners. Ahead of the curve!! Way to go, Harlie!

Oh my gosh! That is awesome! :) I am super impressed. I loved hearing her little voice say most of the letters as well. And I laughed when she quickly turned and opened the laptop. It looks like Mom had said "Show me your letters and then you can play" and she was serious about playing. LOL

She is doing awesome!
