I dance!

So you might already know that some things do not come so easy for our sweet Bristol..This also includes her speech..She has been in speech therapy for over a year now and it has been a very slow process..We have discussed apraxia of speech..meaning the words get lost from the brain to the mouth..I do not realize just how behind her speech is until we are around other small kids..And it is not so easy to answer
" Why doesn't Bristol talk?"..to another 2 year old.. but I try to with a smile..
So today we were at the big girls talent show practice and all the kids were dancing on the stage..I was talking to Bristol as always explaining to her what they were doing..and then she said something..I did not get it the first time ..but the second time I got it loud and clear.."I DANCE".. She said..She wanted to dance on the stage too..I was excited for her 1: to put two words together..2: to express what she wanted..

I am aware this may seem so simple to some but for our Bristol it is yet another answer to prayer..
