Who You Calling Bird Brain???

  I waited to do a blog post so I could show you Lily Bird's latest academic achievement.

We went to Lily's school for another parent training today.  

Last week, one of her therapists told me that Lily can do a new game on the iPad.  Alphabet letters come floating across the screen and she can tap the letter and put them in alphabetical order. 

I couldn't wait to see it!  And now you can, too!

Check it out:

No one, at school or at home, has taught her anything about ABC order.  She just started playing the game one day and got it all right.  And she does it right every time.  She even gets a little impatient with the other kids at school who don't get it right every time!

I'm telling you - that child may not be able to talk, but she is brilliant!

I can't really say the same thing for that child's mother who sounds like a total redneck in the background.  But I don't think there's any doubt that we're all excited about this latest achievement.

She's a smart one, that Bird!

  8. It made me tear up then it made me shout praises then filled me with awe for the God who loves a little Bird just like she is. And all of us, just like we are.

  10. That. Is. Awesome. So much is going on inside our kids' heads, even if they aren't yet able to articulate it. That's why God created iPads!!!!!
