Another month gone so quickly. Your daddy told me the other night, “It seems like every night when I lay down to sleep I realize that I was just doing this yesterday! The days go by so quickly!” And it’s true. My wee little Abby baby is “Soooo big!” (Here’s where you hold your hands outstretched and grin.)
Today you did it. I unbuckled Isaac from his carseat, gave him a kiss and told him “I love you!” When I came around to your side you made a kissing noise at me and said, “Ah luh lue.” By which I am quite sure you meant “I love you.” Boy, did my heart ever melt! You are so affectionate and lovey – your dad and I just eat it up!
One other darling thing that you do: You like to stand up on something – a chair, a box, whatever. Then you turn circles and grin while singing, “lalalalala”. Very cute and possibly dangerous too.
You’ve been putting lots of words together in two-word sentences. “Hi Daddy”, “Bye Grammie”, “No, Isaac”, “Help please,” etc. Your physical abilities are also maturing – you’re trying to figure out how to jump with Isaac on our mattress/trampoline and you’re almost running but not quite. The few nice days when we’ve gone to the playground you are all over the equipment. I love watching you but I really have to WATCH – you tend to go down slides head first!
I’ve also been amazed to watch you pick up on the helping skills that I had to work so hard to teach Isaac. It’s like you automatically want to do what he does, so you now are able to be my bona fide “trash-throw-away” girl. You also hand me the clean silverware as we unload the dishwasher. Sometimes you even help “set” the table. You “help” sweep with the dustmop while I use the broom and I often catch you “cleaning” by rubbing some surface with a random towel or washcloth you’ve found.
I love my little Aba-doo (your nickname this month, I guess!).
