I think Sierra's getting ready to learn to read. There are subtle clues, like magnet letters scattered all over the kitchen floor. (Our black cat, Merlin, likes to knock them off the refrigerator.) She sets them up and then asks me what they spell. If anyone could tell me how to pronounce "dDyAabmKsOwQszso" I would appreciate it. Bonus if you know what language it is and what it means. She'll ask.
She's gotten pretty good at writing her name, too. A few days ago, as she was writing, she asked me, "How do you spell 'meow'?"
"M-E-O-W," I say.
After looking at her paper, pen poised, she replied, "Umm, I don't know how to spell that."
