Abigail at 21 months

Abigail continues to delight us. She is goofy, fun, obedient, friendly, smart and independent. She is still a peanut when it comes to eating. Eating is always second priority. She is not a picky eater and prefers ethnic or spicy food. She loves sweets too. She is very good at eating her fruits and vegetables...actually enjoys them the most - well other than the sweets. We have recently realized that she does not handle life well when she is sick. We're trying to balance the compassion with the discipline to get desired behavior no matter what the circumstances. She loves music and is singing along with all of her favorite songs. She is learning her letters well. She surprised me by saying, "Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday" the other day. She likes to count and can count to about 14 - always skips two though, weird. She loves seeing her family - grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins and knows them all by name. We are so blessed to be surrounded by people who love her so. The feelings are mutual. She also enjoys play dough, taking care of her baby, playing in her kitchen, doing sticker books, reading books, doing puzzles, helping mommy, going to gym class, playing with blocks, coloring and being outside. She is a good sleeper. She is starting to put sentences together and really wants to communicate. She has too many words to mention. Attention seems to be more important to her as she instructs everyone in the room to "Watch!" her do something new and inspects to make sure they are "watching." You can see her pride as she is accomplishing new things. She is very into babies right now, and we're hoping this continues as the new little one arrives.
