You may want to turn down the volume a bit on this one. Jaden gets pretty excited when he sees himself on camera. We wish all of you a wonderful Holiday and hope this coming year greets you with happiness and health!
Jaden just turned 4 (12/16/04) and he is nothing short of extraordinary. He is the most "typical" little boy in so many respects, yet so unique and "a-typical" in other ways. We really wouldn't want it any other way either. He is talking up a storm, really enjoying sign language, and like always is a complete ham. Entertaining is definitely in the cards for his future, that is a given. We all knew this was the case when at 6 months of age, we would pull out the camera point it in his direction and he would pull out all stops to smile and make a goofy expression. Now that we can make videos on the web cam, forget it, he just LOVES seeing himself on camera. It's hysterical what his personality conjures up when the 'light' is on. I definitely see break dancing in his future, for this seems to really be his forte. I mean 'old school' break dancing as well, spinning on his back, jumping up to his feet, the whole thing. I will upload video shortly of this. He's really mastered the break dancing over the last year, and now, I think we might just have to let him start performing for crowds! I mean a 4 year old break dancing? It's really funny to see. He also LOVES the piano and seems to really have a knack for that as well. We're starting to give him lessons now but he mostly loves bothering his sister when she's playing. As far as school goes, well, he couldn't be happier. Each day when we drop him off, the other kids race to see who can give him a hug and a high five first. He got his first report card and is doing so well. He knows the whole alphabet, how to count to 20, he's sight reading certain words, all of his colors, etc. The teachers tell us he knows things many of the other "typical" children don't know yet and always ask us what we're doing. Our answer is "Nothing special really, he's just a super smart kid!" What more can I say as the proud mom of Jaden? Well, probably a lot more but I'll stop here:)
