In the last couple of months Isla has taken a lot of interest in letters of the alphabet and in particular spelling her name. She has known that 'I' is for Isla for quite a while but she also knows lots of other letters that she can associate with things, like 'D' for Daddy, 'M' for Mummy etc. And in the last couple of weeks I've become really impressed that she is making great strides with writing her name and although not completely right I feel it's a moment worth commemorating for my 3 and a half year old. It's recognisable as Isla! The nursery are doing so well at encouraging her with this and in a very covert way as well that isn't pressurising at all, just telling her to put her name on her artwork and other things she does.
I love seeing her blossom and accomplish new things. It makes me full of pride.
