She was very vocal and loved drops of Mountain Dew and sucking on candy bars that her Grandpa Curt gave her. Lainey especially loved “Mommy and Me time”, her mom always had that special touch to calm her when she was upset. She also loved watching the Iowa Hawkeyes with Daddy and watching tractor videos.
