General Update

Age (in months, or years and months): 33 months

Physical abilities: refuses to pedal her trike or bike even though she used to be able to do it. She will do it once in a while, or in strange places like the grass where it barely moves. Grandma says she has pedaled for her though. She’s just being stubborn for me I guess.

Speech/language: vocabulary, sentence length, etc: Even more songs this month. I’m trying to write them down as I hear them to keep track. Is making up words like too “birdsy“, “choo chooey“, “splashy“, etc. in addition to regular words like too chilly or too windy. Everything is “too” something.

Reading/pre-reading: Will not perform on command, but I know she knows all her letters still as I hear her talking to herself about them, or when she asks for a certain letter that she can’t reach. We haven’t been reading as many books a day lately…my fault. She can spell her name with magnets, and we are working on writing it.

Number stuff: remains not an interest, is rote counting 1-10 sometimes I hear an 11 or 12

Other cognitive stuff: puzzles, reasoning, etc

Creativity: same

Imagination: so much pretend play lately, has imaginary “friends” that come along with us when we leave. Does not need actual objects to pretend, and just pretends to pick things up and has lengthy conversations with “nothing”

Social: prefers to play with other kids and is sad when they won’t play with her because they are older or when there is no one around at all to play with on the playground.

Character/personality: I’ve decided she loves her sister in the morning and as the day goes on she likes her less and less. She is handful these days being very demanding, whiny, and has to have everything a certain way.

School Updates: n/a
