She eats and sleeps easily! She took to whole milk in a sippy cup without any hesitation and is almost purely a self feeder besides the occasional yogurt, applesauce or soupy dish like pasta with sauce. She sleeps on a mat, not a crib, at school and is down to one nap a day, around lunchtime. At night, she sleeps from 7 PM - 6:30 AM. When you walk toward her room, she immediately yawns and when I hand her her lovey, she cuddles up to it and falls onto my shoulder. Not a tear at all. It is amazing!

This was her first time- we don't regularaly feed her foods like this since there is no real nutritional benefit and she eats so little you can't waste what goes in. It was a great treat!

Abby found this funny face from Tiffany intriguing. Obviously, it is an inherited skill as Kyleigh could do it without a problem! Funny!

Chatting with friends on the phone...
If we are lucky enough to be able to feed her with a spork, Abby loves to pretend like she isn't paying attention to the food in front of her and then quickly dive in and bite it off the spork. We applaud her technique (really just the fact that she is eating) and she claps and gets ready to do it again!

Marcus and I love it- Thursdays at 9 PM (Central time) on A&E.
It follows real life US Marshalls tracking wanted suspects. They will outline their strategy, show you their location and route on Google Earth, meet at ungodly hours of the day, and give you a real feel of NYC. I know where not to visit!
Set your DVR and check it out!
Also, if you see Girl Scouts in the area, they are now accepting donations for cookies to be sent overseas to soliders. How awesome is that! I softly turned down the sweet girl and her Mom at Abby's school and they told me I could donate to a soldier instead. I hope they like Thin Mints!

Next up, teaching her what each of these animals are! Thanks Tabriah for a wonderful gift! I was so sad to put the Little People nativity away and now we have an alternative.

Heck, she wouldn't even smile for me!

Hi Momma! Hi Daddy! This weekend we moved my carseat to Marcus' car and faced it forward for Abby. We have the clearance from the pediatrician! This carseat can face backward longer, but she is long and gets mad kicking the seat. So, we moved it to Marcus' car that she only rides in about 2 miles per day.

When we got home, I pulled out all of her 12-18 month winter clothes and washed, dried and put them in her drawers and closet. So many memories in this bin- clothes from sweet friends, items I bought last winter's end, and gifts from our baby shower!
