One of my biggest fears in having a child with Down syndrome was speech.

And while Ellie's speech is delayed, speech is one of her relative strengths.  When Ellie busts out a great new sentence or word, I smile.  (I may have smiled bigger when she finally attempted the bars at gymnastics, but seriously, this child's commentary is hilarious.  Every single day.)

Here are some recent winners:

Me: Ellie, what do you want to be for Halloween?
Ellie: An iguana.

Overheard, Ellie talking to her doll: Baby, FIRST I change your butt.  THEN you have a snack.  (Oh, my!)

Looking at a picture of a great white shark, laughing: Wow!  Crazy teeth!
And bedtime prayers after watching Shark Week on Netflix: Dear God, bless sharks.

Making a birthday card for her friend Louisa:
Me: What should we write?
Ellie: Happy birthday Lulu.
Me: Then what?  Like Lulu, you are…
Ellie: Lulu you are CRAZY.

Me: Ellie, be quiet.
Ellie: No.  I be a ANIMAL!  Quack.

Ellie to her stuffed dino: Dino, you go pee pee on the potty like a big girl.  Yay!  Good job.  (Turns to me, rolls eyes) CLAP for Dino!

Randomly, at the breakfast table: Puerto Rico beautiful…. there dolphins.
