Lately Maisie is into letters, and she'll ask what words start with what letters. She doesn't say, "What letter does 'book' start with?," though, she'll ask, "What letter starts with 'book'?" Tonight we went through pretty much everything in her room -- "What starts with ROCKING CHAIR? What starts with PIG? What starts with TABLE? What starts with PAJAMAS? What starts with LULU?," and on and on. Finally I told her it was time for bed. She fussed a little in her crib but finally settled down. A few minutes later I was in the kitchen with Jake fixing our dinner (ha ha -- putting takeout Indian food on our plates) when she hollers down as loud as she can, "WHAT. STARTS. WITH. BARBIE?!" Jake yelled up "B" and she's been quiet as a mouse since.
