Bragging Rights!

I am the proudest mommy in the world! I know we all think our kids are the smartest and the best but this time I really do have bragging rights!
Little Simon is 2 1/2 years old, 3 in June. We have been working on his alphabet, letters and sounds, for a long time now. He picked it up suprisingly quite easily. We have made songs about how to spell his name and watched the Leap Frog "Letter Factory" dozens of times.
But, you never really realize how smart your kid is until he starts to do this:

Yes, he is spelling out words on the fridge! Simon can now spell a few simple words like cat, dog, and box. Pretty amazing for a two year old, eh?

Story time has been so much fun with him because I can point to certain words and he can sound them out!

Great Job Simon! I'm so proud of you!

Wow what a smartie! Great job guys. We try to teach Kingston, but at 17 months old, he's not quite there yet. Hopefully he'll be as smart as Simon-

That is so awesome! I've seen that comercial on TV "My baby can read," or some such, and wondered about it. Here's proof I guess that little children can learn to read. I'm so impressed!

That's impressive!! I tought Emily was doing well to know all letters (caps and lower), all the sounds, and she can come up with words that start with whatever letter I give her. But there's no spelling around here at our house! That's really cool and Simon may be on track for genius-hood!! :)
