About Abigail at 17 months

My last blog talked about how verbal the girl is, but I realize it's been a while since I updated her personality profile at this point. Since this is my main way to journal, and I will be turning these blogs into books, I thought I'd do some writing about her now. She continues to be fairly independent and yet clingy at times. She continues to love to be around people - especially older kids, but she gets overwhelmed by kids that get too clingy or too close. You can just see her get annoyed and try and get away. She seems to have a good memory. Yesterday I asked her where the teddy bear was, and she went way over to the other side of the room, found a specific book and a specific place where a bear was and brought it over to me. I thought that was pretty cool. She continues to be random, fun and joyful. She likes to dance and "sing." She is not into eating, and we're in a bit of a challenging phase because she doesn't seem to want food or denies what we're eating at the moment. Then, she becomes grumpy and doesn't realize she's hungry. We don't want to accomodate her by fixing her something else, but we also don't want to deal with a grumpy baby all day, so it's hard to know what to do. She does have a sweet tooth and also seems to be fond of soups, thai food, indian food, and other non-baby items. She also, thankfully, likes fruit, vegis, yogurt, cheese, and bread. She doesn't seem to any kind of meat. She's just random...sometimes eating most things and other times denying everything. She sprouted about 5 teeth all at one time, and had a sinus infection at the same time, so we have recently been dealing with a lot of boogers around this house. She just received her second (in her lifetime) round of antibiotics. She's still fairly obedient, but receives time outs for getting into things she's not suppose to or being disobient in other ways. These don't happen very often because she is a really good kid. She is not afraid of much and likes to be thrown into the air by daddy or onto the bed and hit with pillows. She loves being around all her family. She makes us laugh often.
