Carter's Milestones - 2011 (4 years old)

Carter's 2011 Milestones

At 4.5 years, started playing in Under 7 Soccer League at school with all five, six & seven year olds. Scored the very first goal of the season for his team in GAME 2 (Blake coaching) - 4 yrs. & 9 months

He wrote and spelled ALL by himself - COW, CAT, MOM & other words - 4 years & 8 months

Started new school with Ms. Erika, Ms. Andrea and Ms. Lindsey.... doing so well, coming home every day telling me cool things he is learnind and experiences he is having. - (May 2011 - 4.5 yrs)

He is very interested in addition. He is constantly asking what 7 + 5 is as an example. Ordered some Kindergarden workbooks to start using with him at home - 4 yrs 4 mo

LEARNING: I am really focusing on phonics with Carter. He confidently knows all 26 sounds of the letters when he visually sees a letter - 4 yrs & 4 mo

Exploring new school for Carter for Pre-K, researching Montessori as possible option - 4 yrs 3 monhts

STAGE: In the last 2 weeks, he has started really testing us and becoming more aggressive with his arms swinging them all around. He is not listening as well as he usually does. It seems like we are constantly having to discipline him by sending him to his room, take away his favorite toys or send him to bed early. Don't know what is going on but noticing it at school, with Addie, us and even with sweet neighborhood friends like Barrett last Friday. Really trying to figure out what we need to do to get over this stage as quickly as possible. - 4 yrs & 3 months

First visit to Magik Theater to see "If You Give A Pig A Party," with mommy, Aunt Julie, Uncle Sean, M&M. He absolutely LOVED it and it was SO MUCH fun! - Just over 4 years

STAGE: Just over 4 years and LOVES to spend 45 minutes at night "talking about his day." He asks all kinds of amazing questions and looks forward to it every night.

MEDICAL:Rubbing ears during dinner last night, mentioned throat hurt. Woke up with 102 temp, took right into ped to find POSITIVE STREP test (2nd one, 1st in Dec '10.) Doctor said he is at most common age for it & and usually peaks at 5 and 6 yrs old. First time he has acted pitifully sick. Just wants to climb in his own bed and sleep. So sad. Started 10 days OMNICEF. - 4 years & 2 mo

VERY SENSITIVE STAGE - Right at 4 years old. Busts out crying if I gently kneel down next to him tonight and said I was disappointed in he and Addie when they didn't listen when asked them to get out of the office (seconds before part of the glass computer desk fell and shattered into a million pieces!) (Also busted out crying today when his teachers told me he had 2 time outs at school for not listening and I told him that he couldn't eat his marshmellow snowman?!?!?" - 4 years EXACTLY (Dec 18, 2010)
