U

Helena hasn't quite got the hang of letter names yet, though she readily associates letters with words they initialize. For example, for "d" she produces "dinosaur," "dragon," "Dora," etc.

This morning, playing with letter magnets:

Me: What's that letter? [I'm pointing at "u," expecting "umbrella."]
Helena: [No response. Looks at me expectantly.]
Me: That's the letter "u."
Helena: Moi? [Her eyes linger on "h," compare with "u," and question me.]
Me: No, "u."
Helena: Toi?
