I want to start doing more "status" posts on what's going on with the kids. I found myself trying to scrap some pictures from last summer and not being able to really journal much because I couldn't remember exactly what was going on with them at the time. I looked back on my blog to see if I could take something from here, but there just wasn't much.
So here we go:
Abigail @ 19 months.
*A great nick name for her right now would be Miss Vocabulary. She is talking up a storm. I actually tried writing down everything she was saying in a day and after just a few hours I quit. But here's what I captured on January 14th:
Where's Daddy, Where's Nah-ee (natalie), My plate, my spoon, Scuse' me, I burp, Can I?, Where's the pincess (princess), I want Stawby (strawberry) cake, more, I take Nah-ees (to me, about giving Natalie her sippy cup), I pooped, change the diaper, put pants on, put sock on, (I then asked her where the other sock was), I dunno, Nah-ee take it?, sit daddy's chair, uphere, nakin (napkin), where's baby, what?, wha happen mommy, brush, wash hands, I cold, where banket (blanket)..
at this point I quit writing them down but there are so many more.. she started this at about 17 or 18 months.
*Has quite a temper. When she doesn't get her way, she gets really upset and cries and throws things. We are attempting to nip this one in the bud quickly. Throwing things is just not acceptable.
*Looks out for her big Sister. Not matter what we give her, usually with food or drink, she always makes sure she gets one for Natalie too.. whether it be a cracker, a cookie, or cup of milk
* Loves to dance in her diaper. The last week or so when we go to put pajamas on, we have to take a few minutes for her to get this out of her system. I have this one on video, which will be priceless material for future boyfriends.
*LOVES baby dolls. She got so many for Christmas and plays with them all the time. There's a baby doll that "lives" in her bible class room and she goes straight for it as soon as she gets to class. As far as I know it sits with her the entire class time and then we put it back to bed when class is over.
*Has just now developed an affection for her pop (pacifier). She's usually always taken one at bedtime and nap time, but now she likes to have it more.. I don't look forward to breaking her of this, but we need to do it soon. I hope to just do it on the sly.. like she's not gonna notice.. (yeah right!)
*Is such an affectionate kid. She loves giving us "sqeeze" (squeeze) hugs, and loves giving kisses. Sometimes this affection is just reserved for mommy, daddy and sister, but not always.
Overall she can be a force to be reckoned with, but is also such a sweet sweet girl.
We love you Abigail! Attitude and all!
