riven - that's amazing smile

feel like telling that doc who said she would be a vegtable to go stick his face ina wall.
I think its pretty good for a 4yo given she can barely see, can't speak and can't move and is missing large chunks of brain.

I feel like running up and down the street bragging grin
But when I tell poeple they often say 'but wasn't your dd1 reading at that age' or something deflating.
