Letter of the week: O

O is my little mans letter .. He used to point it out wherever he went like Sam does now with hers.
But he has outgrown that childish game and now he prefers his full name:
  • he writes it himself (just his name) and any colouring ends real fast (he hates it, I have no idea why) he colours about a square inch (tiny spot on a page), decides he should write instead, writes his name and if I suggest some other words he claims "too tired" and runs off to jump on bed ... :D
  • he uses scrabble letters to put together his name in two "letter couches" as we call them .. :)
  • he uses puzzle letters to arrange his name (something quite similar as scrabble just letters on puzlepieces) other kind of puzzles do not interest him now ...
(On really rare occasions I have managed to trick him into writing Sam's name)
