Sophia drew a picture of me... and wrote 'Mom!'


So, the other day I was sitting at my desk, working on my computer. Sophia was sitting on the floor by my desk, drawing. She asks, 'How do you make an 'm'?' I showed her on a piece of paper. A minute or two later, she holds up the picture you see above, and says, "look, I drew your picture and wrote Mom!" (Click on the picture to take a closer look!)

I was floored! I'd never showed her how to do that, I just wrote the 1st 'M' on a separate piece of paper! I've never worked with her on writing her letters. She's known her alphabet (to say aloud) since she was about 1 1/2 years, but we've never 'worked on' writing them, or recognizing them. This is all her. She watches 'Word World' and another show like that, so I guess she's picked up a few things!

I love her picture too - complete with eyebrows, ears & earrings. Sophia turned 3 in October, so she's almost 3 1/2. Yup, she's smart like her Momma! ;)

I was floored when Spicy Girl did her first words like that. I think I framed it!! Anyway, way to go Sophia!! What a treasure. I bet the other show you're talking about is Super Why....which we are watching right now.
