The letter obsession continues. 'Hannah' is being written everywhere. She knows the first letter of everyone's name and uses the initial to address letters and pictures.

I made her a 'letter book' for her to take with her wherever she needs to - it's amazing where you need a letter book, you know. I used these - printed out from the PDF page, four to a sheet of cardstock, cut apart, and tied together with a ribbon. It's cute and very useful.

I also made her a letter poster for our living room for when she didn't have time to flip through the letter book. This was becoming an issue. The poster works well. It's also fun for her to grill her sister. ("Do you see a xylophone Ainser? A xylophone? Good job! Do you see a nightgown Ains?" - especially hilarious since I can't remember the last time we talked to her like that.)

Now that the girls have their own computer, Hannah likes to have me put up the 'letter page' (word processing program) and she types away. Recipes, letters, books, shopping lists, notes, and letter practice. Letter practice is something she made up. First, she types in a letter, with her sister looking on.

Then they both go over to look for that letter on the poster.

It really doesn't get much cuter than that.

Then after they find it...

they have to go back to the computer and start the process over again.

Ignore Ainser's hair. I can't do anything with it.

Ah - I just recently chopped at Maddie's. Because she doesna like tangles. So it's ragged and uneven now.
But there are no dreds in it!
(unlike her Mama's.)

Oh my goodness, this is way too cute. I bet Ainsley is going to learn her letters at a very young age hehe. She has the best kind of teacher. ;)
