He did such a good job, the student beat the teacher. He claims to have "thrown" the game, but she had 2 strikes so I don't think he was bad as much as she was really good.

That is the birthday girl in pink blowing out her candles. Her clever Momma stuck paintbrushes in the cake. Isn't that a cute and easy idea? So smart!
I let Abby try ice cream instead of cake. She ate the entire party-sized container and didn't look back. She was sitting in a big girl chair and didn't ever try to get out. I could tell when the sugar hit because she was full of energy!
It is fun watching her learn- you see her process the word she is hearing and then respond.

Next up, we'll use them to teach her letters and words!

I think she most enjoyed the snow from her warm highchair. She smushed it, poked a spoon in it and dumped it out of her little bowl.
Although we didn't get the sweet perfect snow angel pictures I imagined, I am so happy she got to touch some snow!

We tried pancakes this morning for breakfast and she had one bite. I swear she is living off the nutrients from milk right now. She has no problems drinking, thank goodness. I'll be sure to share when this phase ends!

This evening, we gave her the Valentine's Day presents from Nana and us. Here she is watching her new sign language video and looking at the book Nana gave her.
This is one of those pictures that scare me- I can picture her as a little girl. She doesn't look like a baby!

Speaking of like, my girl likes her cupcakes. No real hesitation. No real preference to vanilla or red velvet. She'll take one in each hand.

Abby's teachers at school and Marcus and I have really loved teaching Abby sign language. Marcus' sister is a huge proponent of ASL and bought Abby a book and recommend a great video to us. She is learning words left and right now- I honestly can't keep up! At school yesterday, they showed a prospective parents Abby's skills to demonstrate the use of sign.
Here is a video of many of her words. She learned "please" yesterday. We are working on banana and book right now.
In the order she learned them, she can currently sign:
- All Done
- Thank You

How do you think Marcus will look as DJ Lance Rock for Halloween? Anything for his baby girl, right?
