A, B, C, D, E-I-E-I-O

It’s been a busy month work-wise. Lots of fun language stuff happening with Henrietta, trips to visit Portsmouth and to New Haven for The Game, and now almost Thanksgiving — better post before it’s too late!

  • Singing to herself: usually the alphabet song or Twinkle, Twinkle, and as you might guess from the post title, sometimes merging into Old MacDonald. Often it’s a request, as in, “if you don’t mind, I’d like to hear the Alphabet Song now, Mom.”
  • Mine. Definitely learned that at day care. Smart girl.
  • “Reading” to herself: she’ll sit in her chair with a book and flip through the pages. Bonus: at day care, she was spotted going through a baby signs book (one we also have at home) and doing the signs.
  • The car seat is facing forward now, so we’re getting more “kruck” (truck) and “busss” sightings. And sometimes “digger” (anything Tonka-ish).
  • “Baf”: she knows the sign for bath and is actually excited about it now (and mad when she has to get out). Lots of pouring and splashing in her tub.
  • “Stuck”: also learned from day care, and used very effectively when she can’t extract herself from something (though this often includes the car seat and Ergo carrier).

There’s much more, but that’s enough for today!
