Kayla Can

Here are 21 (21 because of Trisomy 21) things Kayla CAN do:

Kayla can...

1. Get dressed, including putting on her shoes (she struggled with that last year), and her backpack, by herself.
2. Use her imagination and have a tea party.
3. Brush her teeth.
4. Go to the bathroom by herself.
5. Be a great big sister.
6. Run and Jump
7. Recognize/identify/tell you her letters, numbers, shapes, colors.
8. Read site words in books.
9. Sing Jingle Bells.
10. Sing and sign songs from Signing Time, like "I'm Awake."
11. Very roughly write her first name.
12. Recite the Pledge of Allegiance.
13. Lace beads.
14. Walk up steps alternating feet (I think last year she was still placing both feet on each step.)
15. Go sledding.
16. Create masterpieces.
17. Open the sliding door on the van (she couldn't do it last year and this is great for building the hand strength she needs.)
18. Unbuckle her seatbelt.
19. Put on make-up.
20. Tell you her first/last name, how old she is, what grade she's in, and her teachers' names.
21. Go to school with her peers.

Get It Down; 31 for 21

Go, Kayla! She is such a rock star.

And now that song is stuck in my head.

Hey! I'm awake and I'm ready to start my day. Good morning, everybooody!

She is so sweet with those big blue eyes. She can do whatever she wants to do.

She's such an accomplished little girl!

I love all the links in her list. Aren't you glad you're a blogger and have preserved the details about all these special memories?

She has grown so much in the last 3 years since I've known you through blogging and it's always a thrill to see her overcome an obstacle or learn to do something new:-) I love her to bits!! xoxo
