Rhythm is such a funny word I had to look it up to double check the spelling. Anyway, Jonathan has shown advancement in doing puzzles, having patience to turn the piece more than in the past. Today, he successfully put the triangle and square pieces in his shape sorter, where before he only could do the circle.
This evening while we were making dinner, Jonathan patted his legs in a perfect two against three pattern. Jon reminded me that Janet had been teaching him that during a visit.

I know the expression about people's jaws dropping is mostly used metaphorically, but in this case mine literally did when I read about the two against three!

He only did it for a couple measures, but it definitely was there for a bit.

Ha! That's so cool. I remember he would settle down if I patted his back or bottom in said rhythm. (I have no trouble spelling rhythm because I've used it in numerous papers at school . . .) I wonder if there's a connection, because I only remember doing it when he was quite little - I think at Christmas time (2003), so that would be between 1 and 2 months!
