It may be because I'm a graduate of Indiana University's School of Journalism; a lover of the written word or an abhorrer of the "R U LOL OMG" way in which the world communicates in this emailing/texting era. But, for whatever reason, I'm in love with Alena's developing ability to write in sentences.

Dare I say this sentence writing makes me prouder than her crawling did years ago?

She's grasping the difference between periods and question marks. She now writes words she can spell on her own and asks for help in spelling the words that she can't yet spell independently, as she pieces them all together into sentences.

Sentences, I say. Makes me smile just thinking about the kindergarten style letters. I love them.
