Claire's favorite letters

Earlier this week, Claire said, "K is for Kate." I looked over, and she was holding one of those plastic refrigerator-magnet letters, and it indeed was a "K." Then she reached over to the fridge, picked off an "A" and announced it was for Andrew. Encouraging, her, I asked about the remaining letter which was a slam dunk: C for Claire. I wanted to continue, but there were no more letters on the fridge. (Later, I found a batch in the clothes hamper in the closet.) Another favorite letter is "U for Uncle" --most recently an 8-inch foam version from the interlocking floor tile set.

I am not surprised! Anyone as observant and alert as Claire is bound to make the connection between symbols and words and meaning earlier than some. "N" is for Nanna
P.S. We loved the pic from the previous blog of the little sis gazing at big sis. Sigh. . .
