This cutie girl is just three months shy of her 3rd birthday!
She's getting so big! This month Lauren is tall enough to reach the top of our [rocker] light switches, so now she can turn lights on! Sometimes it seems like she's still a tiny little peanut, but a new reach means she's obviously growing. Lauren's coordination has really developed, and she's almost fast enough to keep up with her brother.
Lauren loves to jump and balance and climb and do all sorts of tricks. She likes riding her scooter and her strider bike, but usually prefers our help while she rides. Hopscotch on the sidewalk is right up her alley!
It's been a chatty month for Lauren, as she learns lots of new words and her vocabulary really develops. Her articulation is great, and her enunciation is fantastic. She. says. every. word. carefully. and that makes it much easier to understand what she's saying.
Lauren is a mama, through and through. She spends a large portion of her days caring for babies. While she's the mama, I'm Carrie. She doesn't like Collin to call me Mama when she's the mama! Sometimes Lauren's babies need new diapers or new clothes, often her babies are "hunny" for a bottle, and they always love going for walks. When it's naptime for the babies, Lauren will sing songs and she always says "yay by you?" to ask if baby wants her to lay beside the crib.
Lauren is full of spunk - such a funny girl! She loves clowning around to make people laugh, and she LOVES to laugh.
Lauren Kate is a really sweet sister - compassionate and attentive to Collin, great at sharing (90% of the time...), and a super fun playmate. She loves having a big brother!
