Lennon is starting to understand the concept of "gentle" so we've been allowing her to spend a little more time interacting with Trooper and Chloe. She's been chasing them around the kitchen table, petting, hugging, and kissing them. She tells them: no, out, and eat; she can also say: Bubba/Bubby, Chloe, doggy, and beagle. This morning she was even trying to "read" a book to Trooper, showing him the pictures and making animal sounds for him. Lennon loves her doggies!
