A new year offers the opportunity to reflect on the past year. 2015 was a wonderful year for Maya. She has made great strides in her speech. She learned to say her name and she has learned how to pronounce new letters. During 2015, Maya has grown and changed, and she is learning to share her unique personality with her words.
During 2014’s holiday season, Maya did her best to sing Christmas carols. She knew a few words to “Jingle Bells” and she loved singing, “jingy bells, jingy bells, jingy all the way” over and over again. Her love of the song was always met by our encouraging praises. 2015’s Christmas season brought new changes and new songs. Maya has found her singing voice and she enjoys singing many different Christmas carols. She is doing her best to master jingle bells and she sings it almost every day.
2016 offers many new experiences and learning opportunities for Maya. She will turn 5 this year and I can’t wait to see how much she grows over the year. The start of 2016 has already been exciting. Maya has learned to write her name. One of the greatest joys in parenting is watching your children grow, learn and explore. I am looking forward to all of the new adventures we will experience during 2016. I look forward to sharing them with you over the course of the year.
