Ellie watched the same episode of Blue’s Clues for about the 80th time this morning. After Blue’s Clues was over, there was a little 5 minute bit featuring the Noggin characters Moose and Zee. They showed how they spelled their names “Moose A. Moose, but people just call me Moose, and Z-E-E.” Ellie must have picked up on this, and was at the refrigerator this evening with her alphabet magnets, looking for how to spell Zee. Sure enough, she found the Z and two E’s, and spelled it out just right. She knows how to spell her own name now, after much prodding, but this was completely out of the blue. I’m still in shock.
