We love cheering in this house.
We need to be careful, however. Too enthusiastic of a cheer and it scares Abby and she starts to cry. :O Too little, and it loses it's effect.
Some little things to cheer about:
I was packing for us to come home from Capital City the other day. Abby came up to me, looked me square in the eye, and asked: "Car?".
I smiled. "Yes honey," I replied. "We will be going for a car ride."
"Car?" she asked again.
"Soon," I said. "I need to finish packing, then we're going to go for a car ride home."
" 'K," was the reply as she runs off to play.
A couple of days later, and I hear Abby and her tutor playing in the next room. I can tell from the interaction that they are putting pieces into the "Elmo and Abby" book.

"No, no," says the tutor. "Broccoli doesn't go there. The backpack goes there."
There is a short pause, and the tutor begins to laugh. "Oh Abby," she says, "you're so smart!"
Turns out she was trying to cram a piece of toy broccoli into the space where the backpack piece fits because there was a picture of a piece of broccoli in Cookie Monster's backpack!
Yeah! 2D to 3D matching, and we're not even at that program yet! She's such a smart cookie. :D
