"I made this bridge, see?" shows Madd."Aaah... a bridge between two lands?"
"And it's stabled. See? I put this right here in the middle so it's stable."
Reading to herself.Reading to her animals.
Reading to Annabelle.
Trev and I used to play this reading game when he was her age (in the car, in the grocery store, wherever)... I'd say something like "I'm thinking of an animal that starts with the 'p' sound. (the sound, but not "puh", just a quick "p".) "Pig!" He'd say. "Right!"
Maddie hasn't been able to separate the sounds, yet, she's never understood it. "Mmmm is for lights!" she'd say. :)
Until last night.
Last night when we were lying on the couch, she went for an hour. "'ck' is for 'cup'. 'd' is for door. 'ff' is for 'fish'."
On and on. She has gotten it. She is on her way.
