Two years ago today, Abby joined our family. From then on, I knew I would do anything and everything for our little girl. Time has just flown by. I can't believe it's already been two years. Last night as we were driving home, we had a little conversation that went something like this:

Me: "Abby, guess what tomorrow is? Tomorrow is your birthday. You're going to be two years old!"
Abby: "Uh-oh"

Guess she knows that trouble is coming my way!



Two year old Abby is adorable. She is learning so much every day.

  • She can say practically anything now, even though sometimes her words don't sound like the actual thing. (amic for ice cream, nanilk for milk just to name a few.)
  • She can speak in 3 word sentences, for example "Daddy at work?"
  • She can tell us when she is poopy-potty training here we come
  • She can differentiate between things. For example, Sam was reading her "Goodnight Moon." Abby saw the comb, and called it a brush, then she noticed the brush, stopped for a moment and corrected herself by pointing to the comb and saying "comb" and pointing to the brush and saying "brush."
  • She loves to play with my hair and rub my back. I love it too.
  • She loves all things girly and often times we can't leave the house until her necklace is on and a purse is over her shoulder.
  • She loves babies and will often ask to "hold it"
  • She loves to sing songs
  • She knows the difference between single and multiple like "butterfly, butterflies" 
  • She is obsessed with bugs and will stop and look at ants and "tato bugs" and she also knows that "spiders, kucky."
  • Whenever she doesn't want something, she will always tell us "no, Honey" as if she has to let us down gentle. (especially when she does multiple no's: "No, no, no, Honey."
  • She is one smart pumpkin. We were watching Elmo's World, and Miss. Noodle was making a tower out of blocks. She had to get the red triangle on top. Abby noticed and started digging through her own blocks and pulled out a red triangle too. I was so proud.
  • She is a daddy's girl through and through.
Happy Birthday my little Abbigale. We love you so very much!
