Wow, that's kind of a tough one. Some of his accomplishments have been so long coming that they are really huge when they happen (like not walking until 35 mos). Right now, I'd probably say that he is beginning to read and really do well with it! They increased their expectations/goals for him in his reading program because he was making such great progress. It's one thing that I have always hoped he would be able to do and to see it coming to fruition right now is just huge!

My oldest, probably finally getting a 'passing' writing grade instead of 'needs improvement.'  He's dyslexic and struggled in spelling/writing since kinder.  He's in 5th and both report cards this year he has finally passed writing at grade level.

My 3 littles, honestly surviving their birth and coming home is probably their greatest accomplishment.  We didn't think we'd see the day, and I told them anything else was just gravy.  But since then, my son was probably gaining back his language/communication after regressing at 2.  My one daughter is a self taught reader at a 2nd grade level (she's 5 and in prek).  My little daughter took until age 4 to walk, so that was a big one.  I'm not sure I have one that tops that for her yet, but more's a coming.  ;)

That's amazing. My 14 year old is severely dyslexic so I can soooo understand your pride there!

Your little ones make my heart happy!

Jacob at school will go get his own breakfast and lunch. And he will also help some of his friends and take there food to them. Jacob is talking a little more. I will ask him if he would eat this or that. And he will tell me ya or no ! And using his speech device. He can point to his colors,shapes and a few letters.
