Spelling A

After that last post, I felt really guilty about not saying enough nice things about Alex, so I've got one more to add to the list.

I forgot to mention that he can recognize his name when we spell it for him or show him the letters. On a few occasions he has even spelled it on his own, but usually we tell him the A, he provides the L, we remind him about the E, and he almost always remembers that it ends with an X. I don't know why, but we think that is the coolest trick ever, that he knows how to spell Alex, especially considering he only started saying it a few months ago.

Then again, he's a bit of a slacker seeing as how he can only spell four of the nine letters in his name...
