hmmm...

I just want to point something out to those of you who have been around for a while and remember the picture from last December of Joshua and Patience looking at their photo albums upside down. In yesterday's post I included a picture of Joshua in his new superman costume... looking at a book upside down! What is it with these kids?? It's pretty cool to see a year's worth of physical growth in our kids, even if they're still challenged in other areas.

Becky this is so funny! I've watched Kojo look through book after book UP SIDE DOWN!!! I often ask what is with that? Just know you're not alone:)

Laurie, I commented on that in Liberia, and Melodie said she's noticed it a lot as well. Very strange. I thought learning to read at school would help, but clearly he still prefers them upside down when reading for pleasure.

All my kids did this as babies, but after repeatedly turning the book right side up for them, they stopped. Perhaps no one corrected them or took the time to show them the proper way to hold a book.
What amazes me is how much has changed in a year's time. I remember that picture/post and the angst surrounding the waiting! NOW they're with you in their own house reading their own books upside down!!! How cool is that!!!

Regarding the Christmas cards, I don't have your address to send one, but I also miscalculated how many I needed this year, so there were a lot of people who didn't get one...:(
