I found this on Ivo's work table the other day. At first glance I thought it was just a bit of scribbles on the corner of the page, but on closer inspection I realized he'd written his name there. We haven't been "working" on this at all, as I really want him to just enjoy making marks on paper freely at this point. However he is really interested in his own name and likes to watch me write it for him. I guess this is where it helps to have an easy name like Ivo. As opposed to say, Zachariah. Here is a little bit about Ivo's name. It is an odd name I'll admit but we didn't make it up and here's the proof:
Ivo is a German name that means "Yew Wood". It is pronounced "EE-voh". Variant spellings and pronounciations are Yvo (spelling) and EEF-oh (pronounciation). Our Ivo's nickname is Vovo or just plain Vo. Actually sometimes I say it as Voey which Josh pointed out isn't really a very useful nickname because it just rearranges the syllables instead of shortening the name. hmmmm . . .
