Milo has been sounding out words, reading a bit, and spelling like a champ. In fact, Nate and I are about to lose the ability to spell secret things to each other... We have a set of tub letters, and both of my little people are enamored with them for different reasons. Lucy likes to hold the seven and the L and pretend like she's shooting people (sigh). She also likes the letter A because she recognizes it and tells me "A" every time (and, by the way, she already recognizes and points out the state of Texas to me all the time). Milo likes to create words and phrases, like this one that greeted me after I stepped out for a second tonight. Boy (thug-spelling) genius.
