jacob has known how to spell his name on his own for a long time. but lately, we've been working on actually writing it. we write all kinds of things. he does pretty well with me instructing him on each letter. for instance, to make an "m" for momma, i tell him to start with a straight line, and then go down, up, and down. he does wonderful.
yesterday, jerry's dad came over. i told jacob to show him how he could write his name. this time jacob instructed me that he could do it on his own. and in about 10 seconds, he did!
