Mira can now identify 15 letters (capitals only, not lowercase). If you point to a letter and ask her what the letter is she can say it or if you ask her where is the letter Y (or A or L or any of the other 15 letters she knows) she can point it out on a page of words.
Recently she's also started trying to write some letters. She's really good at writing M and I and O, but she also likes to try R and V and N.
I don't feel like I've really pushed her to learn the alphabet, she just seems really interested in it. We'll be reading a book and she'll start pointing to the letters and saying what they are; sometimes she seems more interested in the text than the pictures. And some of her favorite toys are letters, too. She has a set of tub toys that are letters that stick to the wall when wet and she also has a set of alphabet magnets that she puts on our front door. When she colors, she often brings me the crayons and asks me to draw certain letters.
I'm glad that she's shown so much interest in it. I wonder if it's because she loves to read so much and somehow she already knows that reading involves solving this whole letter "puzzle". In any case, she's making my goal of having her reading before entering kindergarten very attainable. ;-)
