Charly Knows Her Letters!



I am so truly amazed by my Charly's most recent milestone of recognizing and repeating all 26 letters of the alphabet, both written and signed....I couldn't resist sharing this with you!...Don't let this picture fool you-Yes, she looks much more interested in the banana otterpop drizzling down her chin, but in between bites she managed to squeak out each of the letters of the alphabet.

It all really started one day when she was in the back seat of the car playing with her letters in a basket. She kept saying "O-S", "O-S"...I didn't think much of it until I looked back and low and behold she was holding the letters O and S!! I had no idea that she was actually absorbing the captions and letters from her ABC Signing Time videos!

For those of you who don't know, I have signed to Charly since the day she was born and feel so blessed today for such a beautiful gift of communication that has enabled her to express her feelings, desires, and identify objects of all shapes, sizes and colors! I am a huge advocate of using ASL as a teaching supplement, in conjunction with speech.

Anyway, HOORAY for YOU, Charly Wynn! I L-O-V-E Y-O-U!

So not only is Charly the most adorable 17 month old on the planet, but by far, the brightest too! She really is so amazing! And so quick to answer too! She doesn't even have to think about it! Way to go! The signing stuff really is amazing! You are a great mom, Kristin!!

Me again! Just read the note you left on my blog! Yes, you absolutely can use any of it. It is amazing. I have never read "Tuesdays with Morrie" but I need to. You know I am not a reader at all, but I ordered Randy's book online last night so you can read it when I am through.
