Spelling his name

Jaan has finally learned the difference between Я and R! I have a cute little video clip that I was going to post here to celebrate, but I can't get it up. You'll have to do with this photo instead. When he looks at the backs of the these puzzle pieces, he sees his name in Russian. He's known that for a long time, but he insisted that R was the same as Я.
He has also been writing his name for a little while now. Or, actually, he writes Н--the second letter--because Я is too complicated. If he wants to write his whole name, he asks me to write the first letter, then he writes the second, and he's so proud of himself!
