New Milestones for Abigail

Abigail is growing up so fast. It amazes me the things she picks up! She can now identify the parts of a face with ease and can also identify other body parts. One fun thing to do is to ask her where the top of her head is. She knows that this is often met with a tickle under her arm, so she'll touch the top of her head as quickly as she can and then quickly bring her arm back down.

Abigail is also getting really good at is using a spoon. She can use a fork, though sometimes she gets impatient when she can't grab her food and often resorts to her fingers. I have been hesitant to give her control of her spoon because of the potential mess it could make. However, Abigail has made it clear that she will not eat something if she cannot use the spoon herself. Here are a few snapshots of her eating yogurt all by herself:

Abigail has been sick this past week with a fever. So Jonathan volunteered to stay with the girls so I could go to church today. When I got back this afternoon Jonathan had a smirk on his face. He proceeded to tell me about how Abigail wanted to play on our bed, but Jonathan suggested she play on her bed. As Abigail played a bit on the bed, Jonathan made her bed. Abigail then picked up a book wanting Jonathan to read her the book. After he read to her, she plopped herself on her bed as she was ready to sleep. Surprised, Jonathan covered her with her blanket and sang to her and left the room. Abigail was fast asleep in her big girl bed by the time I got home!
