Counting and Cookies

Okay, so I am aware that every parent thinks that their child is the most adorable, funny, and brilliant child alive. But I think since we were told that Suzie would be moderately/severely mentally and physically disabled, we are even more prone to gawk at her achievements and think she is the smartest little toddler that ever existed. Especially since she is so far delayed physically, we are just so proud of how she is developing cognitively. We are so thankful for all her progress. So here is a video of our brilliant little Suzie doing one of her new favorite things...counting!


(On a side note, the reason for the blog title is that Suzie's new favorite word is cookie. It is by far her favorite thing to eat, which she is now asking for every time we enter the kitchen or I say it's time to eat. She is also quite fond of the Cookie Monster at Therapy and the ladies at her therapy place have recently dubbed her "The Toy Monster" because she goes through more toys there than any other child:)

Kyle and Steph, we are also so impressed with your little cookie monster! We are always amazed and thankful when we see these videos. God is so kind!! Suzie is seriously SO adorable and we wish we lived closer to you guys so we could see her and know her.

Love you both!
Becky and Chris

Well, to put her growing cognitive development in an even greater perspective, my Ashlee can't count past 3 yet and she's 5 months older than Suzie! I wouldn't be surprised if Suzie defied the odds as she gets older and isn't as far behind as the doctors say she'll be. :)
