For quite a while, Dominic has been spelling things randomly. A few weeks ago, he added making the shape of the letter he said with his finger. Its been random letters, mostly his name, unless he was tracing something.
Today, I was standing looking out the window at the snow when he came up to me and said "Dragon!!" then proceed to spell and trace onto the window sill the letters D R A G O N.
I know that he is actually talking about his How to Train your Dragon 2 movie, and that he has likely memorized the letters.
If he can do that, he can read. We are ***this*** close.
And here is a re-enactment for your viewing enjoyment.
