**Child's name changed to protect privacy**
While playing with the trains, Matthew lined them all up one by one. Once he had them in the order he wanted, he started touching each one saying, "Mommy, Sister, Daddy..."
He continued to go down the row of trains repeating, "Mommy train, Daddy one, Sister one..."
The Educator made the observation that Matthew made his own connection that he is part of a family and that he is his own person. Further, at circle time, when the Educator held up "M" for "Matthew", Matthew replied, "M for Mommy too!"
