Both girls love puzzles, and for awhile now, have been challenging themselves with turning the pieces upside down on a puzzle they have already mastered. It's something they decided to do all on their own quite some time ago. Both girls can easily master a 48 piece puzzle now. It's amazing!
We've also been practicing our names. They know their letters and sounds, know the letters in their name and can usually correctly spell their own, and each other's, names. They have also written letter "Es." Yesterday Ellerie tells me, "I wrote my name!" I walked over to see her in the process of writing the last couple letters. I quickly grabbed my phone to snag a photo as she finished. The "Ls" are upside down, and the "R" looks like a 2-year-old version of a stick person, but she did it and I was/am proud!
