We’ve suspected that Aidan can read for some time now. We read to him for literally hours each day, but he has until very recently resisted doing much reading aloud to us. (Even though, we believe he has been secretly able to read for a long time now.) Today, however, he decided that he’d like to show us what he can do. Using a couple of simple books, he showed us that, in fact, he can read. We captured it on video below. He is very proud of himself, proclaiming that he is “so powerful” now. Indeed, he is.
