Sixteen Months

At sixteen months, Abby maintains her joyful, fun personality. I always wonder what's going through that noggin of hers because she is randomly and wonderfully quirky. She likes to be in the same room as us but is fairly independent. She went through a phase of being a bit more clingy, and we had some sleep struggles lately where she was trying to exert her will. We toughed it out, and now she goes to bed without a peep. She's social yet independent. She has a lot of words and is very mobile. She seems to figure out easily how things work - seems clever. She enjoys clapping, music, reading, scribbling and making a mess. She's a kid that doesn't mind being dirty and loves to be outside. Eating is not very interesting to Abigail. She'd rather be active. Stuffed animals are one of her favorite things. She's learning what is a "no" and is clarifying as she walks by something she's not suppose to get into. She's tested that lately and has received time outs. However, she's a pretty obedient kid and easy to take out and about. She delights us.
