An Eliana first: She asked how to spell a word.

Ethan knows enough words now that when he creates a book, only occasionally does he needs to ask how to spell a word. It’s still often enough that Eliana has picked up on the question. She can write a T and O – mostly by accident – but that’s about all. Yet her inexperience didn’t stop her cute, little voice from asking, “How spell Mommy?”

She didn’t develop her book to the point where I could determine its theme, the protagonist and antagonist, or the characters’ deepest inner conflicts. But I did get to help her form the letter M.
