SRL Weekend Update

Stella’s vocabulary is really taking off! Highlights from the week:

Packing sandwiches for the zoo, Jesse asked me how many to make (including grandparents). I said, “Well, Stella will eat one…” Just as I trailed off in thought, Stella chimed in from the background and said, “Two…” as if we were practicing counting. I was stunned. Little did I know, however, that was nothing! Today we were “reading” the 10 Little Ladybug book. We were on the “3” page, and just after I pointed and said, “3,” Stella continued counting from 4 to 9 all by herself. No lie! I have no doubt that the Oscar’s Balloons app contributed to her catching on to memorization so quickly.

After throwing a fit over eating, I picked her up in my arms to calm her. When she was done crying, she patted my back a few times and said, “I sorry. I sorry.” She could’ve learned this from a number of places, including daycare, me, or Yo Gabba Gabba, which is also on her iPad.

I took Stella to work with me this morning (Saturday) to pick up something. Walking down a long hallway to get to my office, she pointed ahead and said, “S!” As far as I knew, the only letters she knew were “A” and “O.” The “S” was a very pleasant surprise!
