JPL, zero

Walking up to JPL yesterday to take the bus home, Maggie points to the sign at the entrance and declares, "That say's JPL!" Not so surprising, as she recognizes the Roman alphabet with no trouble, but it does count as the second word (after "zoo") that she can read.

Aside: for a long time, she's been better with the hand sign alphabet than the written alphabet.

On skype with Julian this morning, Maggie did a "blast off" countdown: "5 4 2 1 0...blast off!" Points off for missing 3, but extra credit for getting the zero. I'm glad that she knows zero because very few of the kiddie books make any mention of this most-important number/concept.

You have a misplaced apostrophe!

No... he was accurately rendering Maggie's idiosyncratic pronunciation of the word says... she says "say-s" for "says."
