DD3 found some word flashcards the other day with pictures and was playing with them. I know she isn't reading or anything, but she does know her letters and sounds and everything. I randomly put 2 words in front of her with different starting letters and would ask her which one was "bird" and she would pick out the right one. I did this a bunch of times and then added 3 or 4 and she still got them right. It was so cute to watch her say "buh buh BIRD" and then pick it up. DS was reading before 2 and he just knew how how to read...so I have never gotten to see this stage before of figuring it out and sounding it out, it's kind of fun. When she was 2 I guessed she would probably be reading around 4...I think she may be right on target.
