Just some thoughts

I'm watching Abi carefully; every day, for as long as possible. Sometimes I find myself looking at her totally forgetting about the world around me. I can't believe how fast she's growing, changing, learning new things and many of them on her own, just figuring them out.

It is absolutely fascinating to watch her explore. We, adults, take way too many things for granted; stop paying any attention to them; forgetting their existence even though they are with us every day.

Asia and I have learned so much about not rushing things, not rushing life, enjoying and cherishing every stage Abi's at because one day it will pass.

And not long ago Asia said something that changed my time with Abi again. Looking at things through her eyes, joining her on this journey in her world.

And the last couple days Abi stepped on a new path- teething. Yes, she got 1 tooth cut out and there are I believe 2 more trying. She's dealing with it great, including the fevers and runny nose that bothered her so much that she kept waking up a lot overnight. This gives us some extra time to spend with her cuddling with us.

Today I took her to a park and she had so much fun. She loved the slide and two swings. Yes, two since she wanted to be on the other one every 45 seconds ;-)

After we got home instead of going for a nap she decided to read some books with me first. She kept on going to her bookshelf and bringing books, sitting on my lap and when we were dine reading she was going to pick another one.

45 minutes of reading and laughing before the nap.

It was a great day!
