Yesterday Erik was playing with the old fashioned wooden blocks from our childhood collections. He picked up several of them, looked carefully at each, and began announcing the names of various letters of the alphabet. When I sat down next to him on the floor to investigate what he was doing, he had indeed correctly identified several letters. I rejoiced very loudly, and he smiled, looking very pleased with himself.
I highly recommend those delectable little cookies shaped like letters, which Erik has eaten thousands of, and the strange Sesame Street video entitled All Star Alphabet
, starring Stephen Colbert as the letter "Z."
Now if only we can get him to use the toilet.
