I was amazed, shocked and it caused me to whoop, shout praises and call out for some amazed High 5’s! When we were getting ready to go to Auntie Deb’s for our combined birthday party I gave Hannah Auntie Deb’s card and asked her to ‘sign’ it. She’s been able to draw a great H for almost a year now and a couple of months ago she began to draw N’s too. I’m guessing she’s learning that at Ange’s since her friend Noah’s name starts with a N.
Anyway, I asked her to put her H down and normally I would praise her and then finish it off. She drew her ‘H’ and then asked what was next. I said ‘a’ and if she didn’t draw an awesome 3yo a y’all!! Knowing she could write an ‘n’ I said, now add an ‘n’ and another ‘n’ then ‘a’ and ‘H’.
SHE DID IT!!! The spelling is creative but it’s there! Hannah’s name written by herself for the very first time!
It was hard but I did give the card to Auntie Deb (with a request that she please give it back when she takes down her cards.) Heh, she’s a mom and she totally understood!
Way to go Hannah!!!!!
