Joy

Many of you know that Abigail's name means, "a father's joy". Well let me tell you, she is a joy to her mother as well. Oh, not every moment is perfect or joyful. We have our share of whining, tantrums, and general crankiness but in the midst of that, this little girl brings us so much joy! Here are a few of the "new" joyful things she has been doing.

The last two mornings when I have gotten her out of bed, she has laid her head down on my shoulder and really snuggled! She has never been much of a snuggler. Then, when I laid her down on the changing table for a diaper change, she reached up and hugged my neck and didn't want to let go! Oh, so sweet!

She loves any kind of animal and gets so excited to see Dewey laying down. I think she takes this as a sign that he wants to be petted. Sometimes he lets her pet him and sometimes he doesn't.

We just moved her into a big bathtub and she LOVES it. She splashes and plays like it is the greatest thing. I'm looking forward to swimming with her this summer.

She loves being outside (which is great)!

She is learning to feed herself. We have let her try with applesauce (and nakedness) because it can get a bit messy. That is what the picture is of below.


You are so precious!

Just wait until you get to spaghetti! Definately a naked meal!

I actually tried giving her one piece of spaghetti and she HATED it. It may be a while before she eats that, not that we have it very often as it is.

Looks like Abigail's going to be a leftie.

Love, Mom

Hmm, I never noticed that before. Maybe she will be a lefty like her Great Aunt Wilma! :)

(there are probably others in the family who are, I just don't remember).
