This beautiful bundle of fun is 15 months old today!
Lauren Kate is funny and spunky and precious. She brings so much light to our family and we're having a blast getting to know her sweet personality.
Baby girl is a really good listener and she follows directions well. Several key words (hungry/snack/breakfast/lunch/dinner/eat) make her hustle to the kitchen for food. She'll follow directions to go find her shoes, sit down to put socks on, and deliver items to a specific person ("Take it to Daddy!").
Lauren knows and thrives on our routines. When she's hungry, she'll grab a bib and ask us to put it on. After her bath, she gets excited because she knows that next she gets to run around naked. When it's naptime, she walks to the sound machine to turn it on before we grab her blanket. After we read a book at bedtime, she grabs hands for our bedtime prayer.
Favorite activities for Lauren right now include dancing, reading, spinning, climbing, looking out the window, wrestling, and copying everything her brother does. She loves giving high-five, rough-housing, pulling rags out of the drawer to help clean her high chair, jumping on Collin's bed, and drinking from water bottles. She's pretty predictable in her wildness!
Lauren Kate is possessive of her mama, squeezing in when another person (or dog) has my attention. On the flip side, she does really well in the nursery at church and bible study. She mimics facial expressions really well and loves copying a scowl. Favorite above all is Lauren's blankie.
Words are few, but Lauren has great communication skills. She makes clear gestures and is persistent to get whatever she needs. Requiring words makes her frustrated, but we have no doubt she'll get there soon.
Sweet Lauren Kate is just fun, fun, fun! She's learning and growing and changing so quickly, and we are proud of the precious girl she's becoming. Can't wait to see what the next month brings!
