Livvie is recognizing blocks of words on things and asking what it says. It seems small in the hindsight, but it really stood as a development milestone to me. She is able to see that there is a message there and has the natural curiosity to know what it says.
This also came along with what stood out as the first time she brought up, “what does___ mean”. We were reading a book about The Incredibles 2, and came across a line that mentioned how they were illegal and Livvie asked what does illegal mean. It caught me in the moment as a touching perspective that I am teaching her things. I know she is passively picking up a lot of things all the time, but this was a very clearly defined moment of something I helped her learn.
