Major Milestones This Weekend

No pictures of this – will have to get some later, but we had two major milestones this weekend.

1. Maggie actually jumped rope – like five jumps in a row.  This is a HUGE motor skill milestone. She actually swung the rope over her head, jumped (with both feet – no stepping), and kept the rope going to go over her head again.  HUGE!!!
2. Maggie is now reading silently.  This is a MAJOR cognitive milestone.  That means she doesn’t need to hear the sounds of the letters to know what the word is.  She can look at the word and just figure it out or know it on sight.  AMAZING.  She and Mommy were in bed tonight reading together – cuddling but reading their own books.  How COOL is that!
Had to share!  Happy Day!
