Ki is really into dinosaurs, guitars, his Leapfrog, and school. He likes the hands on parts of school. Cute little guy. He is very compassionate. I love that about him. We’ve been working on his temper lately, as he forgets or chooses not to control it. Something we definitely want him to learn sooner rather than later!
Ki has had a huge learning curve the past month or two. Things are just clicking for him lately. He’s understanding tons and it’s so fun to watch! He’s a great big brother and loves Ella very much. He’s also a super helper and enjoys cooking and helping me clean.
Ki is FUNNY! He’s a little character. He is constantly cracking me up.
Ki is getting close to reading. He knows all of his letters and the sounds they make. He is starting to get good at sounding words out. He’s also getting the hang of math. He learned how to use his fingers (which, oddly, seems to be easier than manipulatives) to add and subtract. He is constantly asking questions (please, feel free to answer some for me!). He likes to think he’s in charge. He is very loving and sweet, but rough and crazy. I honestly have no clue what he’ll end up doing because he loves such a variety of things!
