quick story… when emma and i color or draw, i always write her name on her work. i start with a capital E and continue to write the rest of her name as i sound it out. i figure eventually she will understand it, right? so… today, she was playing with ian as usual. they were playing with her mega blocks train. its a train that has blocks that can stack on top of it. each block has a letter on it so as she gets older we can actually spell some words.
emma was playing with the blocks, holding and stacking them, when all of a sudden she held one up and said “EMMA!” ian looked up and saw that she was holding a block up for him to see. the little genius that my daughter is was in fact holding up a block with the letter E!!! i could not believe it. i have never taught her any letters. she continues to amaze me… every single day.
