Gwen is reading!

I have to tell ya, I'm EXTREMELY proud of my smart lil 2 1/2 year old! She is reading 3 and 4 letter words! Mom, Dad, hot, dog, milk, etc. Anything phonetic, she can sound it out and READ! The longest she's read, I think, is napkin. I am not only proud of her, I'm amused by the phonetic lapses in our English language. The other day I heard her 'reading' to herself...

"buh- eh- ah-rr-ss ah-nn kk-hha-ah-ih-rr-ss" (lol, Bears on Chairs!)

Even though it isn't perfect, even the imperfections make me glow with pride. I think my daughter might be a genius. (and all of you can just roll your eyes and give me patronizing compliments. I know I'm only slightly biased)

and these other pics, because I think my daughter is beautiful:

can you tell she is obsessed with Thomas right now? He even gets to wear bling! :)


  1. That is seriously so cool! Congratulations, Gwen! If she only realized what an incredible journey she's started. You can go anywhere in the world and be anything you've ever dreamed of through a book. Give her a big hug for me!

    P.S. Do you have any tips on teaching for me?!!

  2. Your daughter IS beautiful and smart! I love her big blue eyes. And that is SO impressive that she is sounding out words before age 3. Wow. Every teachers dream. :)

    I started reading around 3/4 and I have always loved reading. It's such a wonderful hobby. Lucky girl to have such a good mama to teach her and encourage her too. You're awesome Elisa!

  3. Awesome, Gwen! so proud that she's reading...that's great! and I love the train bling.
