Oh...come on you guys...what else do you expect when we live with two boys?
The little Monkey never ceases to provide us with jaw-dropping moments.
Last night we had to make the drive out to Mothers for my sisters 40th birthday party.
Julien was sitting quietly reading a book, Chris and I were talking and the little Monkey had managed to spot a few cows out the window when all of a sudden I heard her say, "stink".
I looked back at her and saw her holding her little nose and when I asked her what she said, she replied again, "stink".
We just couldn't believe it!
Never, ever has the little Monkey given us any indication that she has fully connected what a smell is.
I taught her long ago how to smell things, but she never made the connection between a smell and what it actually means to smell.
We were all just so tickled and thrilled at the newest bit of progress from the little Monkey!

Your post just brought joyful tears to my eyes once again. Monkey is doing so well, and she has a wonderful family supporting her. Congrats on the progress sweet girl.
