Our THREE YEAR OLD is READING...!!!!!!!

Seriously.

I came downstairs from the bathroom and Eric was reading to Wyatt before bed, but actually really, Wyatt was reading. Sounding out the words. Letter by letter. S-L-O-W-L-Y and then a little less slowly, and then a little faster, putting the sounds together until it made a word he recognized. Words like:

bat
hat
rat
cat
sack
snack
tack
black
nail
mail
sail
snail
lake
cake
rake
snake
red
bed
shed
shred
pen
hen
ten
men
deep
peep
sheep
sleep
beam
steam
stream
kick
lick
chick
lips
zips
slips
drips
lock
sock
clock
block
log
jog
dog
frog
bone
cone
stone
phone
bow
row
snow
crow
skunk

Yeah, he really sounded out all those words tonight. By himself. From a book he has never seen before, so its not like he had them memorized. And some of them are hard. This was the first time he has ever sounded out words.

He just turned THREE.


Is this normal??!!!???!!!???
