Sofia's constant

Sofi likes the number guessing game I taught her which is supposed to teach her the value of log n searches but she hasn't quite figured that out yet. "Is it 1?" "Higher" "Is it 2?"
Every now and then I pick pi just to mess with her.
Today it was my turn to guess:
Jamie: is it 13?
Sofia: lower
Jamie: is it 9?
Sofia: higher
Jamie: is it 11?
Sofia: higher
Jamie: is it 12?
Sofia: higher
Jamie: are you sure? more than 12 and less than 13? 12 and a half?
Sofia: it's pi!
Jamie: it can't be pi, pi is between 3 and 4
Sofia: it's cupcake!
