We have a set of foam letters that we got when Katherine was a toddler. I fondly remember Katherine lining up the letters on the floor when she was learning the alphabet, and the thrill I got when she nailed all 26 in a row.
Now Lucy is playing with them. The last couple of weeks she’s been bringing random letters up to CJ and I and saying one of two things “eye” or “oh”. Every letter gets boiled down into one of those two.
Last week, she brought the letter “U” up to me. I smiled and said, “That’s the letter ‘U’ sweetie.” She smiled and said “Me?”. I laughed – “no, the letter ‘U’. That’s the letter ‘U’”. She smiled again, said “Me”, almost with a nod, and walked off to find her next letter.
