The other day, Millie wrote her name. Not scribble that kind of looked like a word, but M-I-L-L-I-E. She has been doing Ms for a little while but surprised me when she wrote her entire name on a Christmas card.
I sincerely think its because she sees her name often written on things and can recognise the individual letters and recreate what she sees. Clever clogs. When a package of Hippo Blue goodies was delivered, I’m not sure if it was Millie or I who was happier to see her name as the lead character in a storybook, on the top of a beautiful Christmas jigsaw puzzle and gift stickers and on the cover of her very own ‘Millie’ activity book.
