"Stink"

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!
W-O-W!!!

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.
