Another Holiday down!
Luke LOVES counting down the Holidays! Luke was here for Valentines day last year and does remember it, which is pretty impressive to me since he was only here 2 weeks. Now that Valentines day is over he is already talking about Easter! Ha the boy is too funny!
A lot has been happening since my last post. I myself am struggling with a bad case of vertigo but life must go on...
Luke is doing so amazing at school that it is beyond our comprehension. I kept saying for what felt like forever that he wasn't progressing and then I started to look back at the work we were doing (preschool work as he had to start somewhere) and now I look at what he is doing almost all 2nd grade level work and some 3rd. Science and Social studies he is on level with his 5th grade classmates. He has 90 minutes of ASL/ELA every morning with the most amazing ASL teacher ever. She is just amazing and he is learning so much and everyday he comes home and Tom and I just cant believe how much new stuff he learned!
We have a parent teacher conference with both his ASL/ELA teacher and his 5th grade teacher this Friday and we cant wait to hear what they have to say although we pretty much know he is doing awesome!
I love seeing Luke learn to use a ton of classifiers and use them correctly. He is pretty amazing that way. He was making fun of me the other day after I called him nosey boy.. (he is a nosey boy but much to be expected after almost 11 years of knowing nothing!) and he made me and Tom laugh so hard when he took my letters to my name and spelled them out in a dramatic drown out way using the sign nosey it was actually very very Deaf poetry! How does a child that had no language one year ago have Deaf poetry in him? WOW he is amazing that way!
I am working on a new video with Luke signing as the ones on this blog are old and he in no way signs like that anymore. He actually laughs at them when he sees them and cant beleive he signed "like that". We think they are awesome but that just shows you how much he is changing and learning!
Well off to prepare for the next day and the next Big Holiday hahah.
Will post the new video sometime with in the next week!
- My name is Tracy and I am married to an amazing man, his name is Thomas! We are a busy family that is always on the go between church, school, work and sports.... we are not a sitting around kind of family. We have 4 amazing children and are working on bringing home Elias to make 5. My hubby is Deaf and I am a sign language interpreter,we are very involved in the Deaf community and are excited to be adding another Deaf member to our family. Our kids, Aaron-19, Luke-11, Tommy-10 and Paige-5 are anxious for their new brother to be home. This is our second adoption and we are learning more everyday to lean on God, this journey is already strengthening our faith! We are working on learning how to turn everything over to God and know that He has a perfect plan and all will happen in His time! Good things come to those who wait.
