Just spell "VIT"

Got a story for you:
When talking about vitamins I fingerspell "V-I-T."  One day my daughter Kelsey (around age 3 at the time) pointed to the medicine cabinet and did an interesting handshape/movement that looked like:

As it turned out, she was combining all three letters "V-I-T" into one handshape with a fluttering pinkie. The fact that her handshape was an acronym for an English word didn't matter a bit to her.  What was important to her was that it represented the sweet tasting vitamins in the medicine cabinet.  English was not a middleman.  The connection in her mind was direct.
