So, here we go. Abigail has been doing a lot this past month!
She is ROCKING her colors. She is pronouncing them even more clearly and has added the color pink to the mix.
She is doing a great job identifying her shapes and she tries to say circle, (kind of sounds like, “sir”)
She’s getting even more precise with recognizing body parts. She has known most of them for a while, but now she can even point out things like eyelashes and eyebrows.
She has turned into quite the parrot. I couldn’t even begin to tell you all of the new words she has learned this past month. A lot of them just crop up when she repeats something I’ve just said. A few of my favorites from this month, ” Paper towel”, “tank top”, and her 2nd sentence ever…”I toot!”
A few of Abigails favorite things right now:
Her favorite “craft”: Playdoh, especially purple!
Helping Dad make lattes
Playing in the hose
Her favorite fruit: Cherries
Her favorite veggie: Still green bell pepper, carrots, or corn…although she has been willing to eat her peas lately. Do I get a special parent award or anything for that?
Speaking of meal time, we finally ditched the high chair and she is now sitting in a booster chair at the table with a plate and utensils. She has done amazing. We’ve even been working on eating liquid items with a bowl and spoon and she is quickly mastering that as well. She looooves cheerios right now, so it’s been a fun way to kill time, sneak in milk, and help her fine tune those motor skills.
She gives the best kisses and hugs, she can say “I love you” when you get her to repeat back the words individually, she says “men!” at the end of every prayer.
And how could I forget? We are in the very, very, very beginning stages of potty training. Lately, she has been letting me know(but, I’m too dense to realize what’s happening) that she needs to poo and when she needs a diaper change. I bought a ring for the potty and a stool to stand on. She is pretty interested but we haven’t had any real potty success yet. Which is cool with me. Diaper changing is easy, potty training will be hard. I don’t have any plans to push training and am just going to follow her lead and level of interest.
So, wow. Holy huge update!!
You have grown so much and changed in so many ways just over the past month. Daddy and I are so proud of you. You are such a sweet, compliant, laid back, silly, happy girl and we just love being your parents.
