Then about a week ago, out of nowhere, he decided to practice his jumping again. After two or three tries he got both feet off the ground at the same time. He was so excited! He clapped for himself and cheered, "Yay, Anyn!!" I cannot describe the feelings that well up inside me when I see and hear him cheering for himself. I hope he can continue to celebrate his own successes all throughout his life. He worked hard and deserved to feel proud and accomplished.
As a teacher, I always found it so fascinating to witness my students develop and fine tune a few skills in one area before moving to another. I am even more fascinated by it now as I watch my son follow the same patterns.
Which area of development does your child seem to be fine tuning at the moment?
PS. We had some fun stuff going on in the Ladnier household! I am so excited to share that I was a contributing author to Green Child Magazine this month! You can check out my article here. I hope this marks the beginning of great things to come.
Flashback! Here's what we were up to one year who today: "Our Tips For Infant Air Travel"
