J-A-M-B...

Can I just say that Ethan has been WOWing me every moment of every day? This last month has been filled with events that have filled me with laughter. I will post more about those later... but I had to share what has been happening with Ethan in the last two weeks.

It started when Josh, Becca, and Sarah took us to IKEA to look at thier annual sale. (By the way... totally cool to find way cheap prices slashed even more!) We were waiting at the elevator to go upstairs when Ethan pointed upward and signed "A." We looked up and yep, you guessed it, we were at the "A" elevator. If there weren't witnesses I wouldn't of believed it. Ever since then, all he wants to do is look at books and ask me what the letters are.

Last week, Ethan and I were coming inside from the backyard and he stopped at the door and wouldn't go in. I asked him what he was looking at and he pointed at the "Welcome" mat and signed "M" and said, "Mmmmm." Then he pointed to the "O' and signed the letter too.

We also have a blueberry bush outside and so I found all my blueberry books and have been reading them. That is until we found out that he is allergic to the blueberries. Boo. I love the book "Jamberry." Ethan loved the story. He sits with the book reading it with his new big boy voice while talking gibberish. One day he asked me to read it to him and when I was finished I closed the book and said, "OK, it's your turn to read it to me." He pointed to the title and signed J-A-M-B... got to the E and looked at his hand to try and curl it up to an "E" gave up and started at the beginning again, J-A-M-B...

He now knows A, B, D, G, J, M, N, O, and Z! Crazy! I know!
