Lauren Hope is the smartest kid ever!
No, seriously! We were talking about going to Target today and she grabbed her shoes and SAID "I want to go bye bye!" My mom and dad were over and both heard it!
What?! She also said "purple" and "baby" today. She's been repeating (or trying) everything lately. This is my favorite time of toddler-hood! She asks us what everything is lately by pointing and saying "that!"
And once we got to Target she refused to pick out a toy and insisted on a book that we already have. So I let her read the book in the cart all the way through Target and quickly got rid of it before we paid. Grandma distracted her with chips and cookies! (We are so those people.)
Never in a million years did I ever expect when we got Laurens diagnosis that she would make me so proud. She is amazing. She tries so hard and accomplishes everything she sets out to do- even if her timeline and mine don't always match up.
