18 Months!!

(eating cookies from our home teacher-no pants, messy hair) (and happy:)
NURSERY!!! Ahem. I mean, Abby is 18 months! Time is flying by.. I can't believe how grown up she is. And that she's a soon to be big sister! Abby is learning things so fast now I can hardly keep up. Here are a fun few facts about her:
  • She weighs 26lbs (not sure how tall she is)
  • She knows tons of words/phrases ("Lets Go!", "Bye, bye daddy!", Lyla, Emma, Buck (although it sounds like but), drink, eyes, hi, bye, no, yay, yes (although rarely used), etc.
  • She knows where her eyes, ears, mouth, nose, head, and cheeks are
  • She sings all the time, mostly to the tunes of "Old Mcdonald" and "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star"
  • Every day when Paul gets home she gets her shoes and points to the back door saying "Owe iie?" (he's the only one that takes her outside) (judge me, I don't care)
  • She's pretty good at getting her shoes on the right feet
  • She loves to take showers
  • She loves all her babies (everything is a baby; her bears, pigs, etc.)
  • She talks to real babies like she's way older than them always saying in the babiest voice "Oh babe babe babe"
  • She loves dogs. I think they will always be her favorite animal.
  • Shes such a sweet girl. Always gives us kisses and hugs even when we don't ask for them.
  • Today is day TWO in her toddler bed.
  • She is some great free entertainment :)
  • Her hair is a.l.w.a.y.s. a mess! ALWAYS! No matter how many times I fix it a day.

We have this drawer by our computer table. She and Paul decided to make a chair with pillows and blankets so she would sit and not fall off of it. It slides open really easily. She's gotten a few bruises from falling off of it.
Abby's first day of Nursery! (I'll blog more about that next)
She loves to be up high, so I sat her on the dresser we just bought for her little brother. She thought it was sooo funny.
And last, my little Raggedy Anne just playing with mommy on a typical day.

Abby really brings so much joy into our lives. It's so fun to watch her grow up and learn so many things so quickly. She's got the best belly laugh ever and the goofiest little smile. I hate that she's growing up so quickly, but it sure is fun to watch how it happens.

We've made it 18 whole months!! Yay!
